Entrance to Spinalonga

 

Spinalonga is a very small uninhabited island close to the coast of Crete.  In the early twentieth century it was a leper colony.  The last inhabitant, a priest, left the island in 1962.  Life on Spinalonga during this period is vividly but sensitively described in Victoria Hislop’s novel The Island.­­­

  1. Very interesting….and what a great photo, I love the balance between the solid steps and arch and the lacy tree branches. Beautiful!
