Immediately you will be struck by Spetses’ exceptional natural beauty. Still, the island boasts enormous historical significance, not only for Greece but all of Europe, with archaeological discoveries dating as far back as 2300BC. The 18th century saw trade flourish leading to economic development on the island, making it center stage in the revolt against the Turkish occupation.
