The island of Spinalonga is an ancient fortress first built to protect ancient Olous (Elounda), once one of the most important towns on Crete, especially between 3000-900 BC. Later in the 16th century the Venetians built a fortress on Spinalonga over the ruins of an acropolis and it was considered impregnable.
The island of Spinalonga, also known as Kalydon, is located in East Crete off the coast of mainland Crete close to the villages of Elounda and Plaka in the Lasithi region.
