Spetses is one of the Argo Saronic Greek Islands and an island boasting a long naval tradition. It is famous for its significant contribution to the 1821 Greek War of Independence. The island has managed to retain its individual traditional architectural character related to its glorious past. The picturesque old harbour and Dápia, a tourist and commercial centre where the heart of the island’s entertainment beats, are the trademarks of the town of Spetses.
Take a romantic trip around the island in horse-drawn carriages and admire the grand mansions adorning the narrow cobbled streets of the island. You can visit Spetses during September, when Armata, a truly impressive re-enactment of a naval battle takes place ever since 1931. Armata Festival is an epic, once in a lifetime experience, full of emotions and beautiful views which accompany visitors forever. For sports fans, great athletic events are organised every year in April “Spetsathlon”, the biggest triathlon in Greece, and in October “Spetses Mini Marathon”, gathering athletes and visitors that enjoy running and swimming races for the young at heart!
Great villas are available for rental or sale in this culture rich island.
