Interaction with Guests: I will be gladly at your disposal for anything you may need The Neighborhood: The island took its current name from the Venetian era due to its many fragrant flowers (izola di spezzie, meaning the island of perfumes). Spetses emerged as one of the most powerful naval and commercial forces in the Aegean, is famous for its significant contribution to the 1821 War of Independence. In 1821, with the outbreak of the Greek War of Independence, many Spetses captains deposited their important naval force in the Struggle, the protagonist of which was Spetsiotis Kapitanianas Laskarina Bouboulina. Of the most beautiful and most cosmopolitan islands of Argosaronic Sea. The landmark of the city is the port of Dapia, with its famous square, a meeting place for residents and visitors. The imposing statue of Laskarina Bouboulina dominates the center of Poseidonos square. Chancelloria (Kagkellaria), located at the edge of the port of Dapia, has a long history. Prior to 1770 it served as a place of concentration of the island's notables, and later housed the Town Hall 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. If you are a sports lover, you definitely don't want to miss the unique athletic events organised every year in April 'Spetsathlon' and October 'Spetses Mini Marathon', where thousands of participants take place. Spetsathlon, the biggest triathlon in Greece, receives athletes from every corner of Greece and the world who enjoy the Swimming, Biking and Running races. Sightseeing: • The House of Bouboulina Built around the end of the 17th Century, the building is shaped like a Π, a detail which at that time indicated the importance of the owner. Bouboulina was a heroine that played a significant role in the 1821 War of Independence. Visit her house, which now operates as a museum to admire its wood-carved Florentine ceiling, 18th and 19th century furniture, interesting collection of old weapons, fine porcelain and rare books. • The House of Hatzigiannis Mexis Today the house hosts a museum exhibiting relics from the War of Independence, letters written by war heroes like Kolokotronis and Athanasios Diakos, a folk art collection and the relics of Bouboulina. The house was built between 1795 and 1798, and was donated to the Greek state in 1938 by the heirs of the Mexis family. The objects on display represent more than 4,000 years of the island’s history. • Church of Panayia Armata This rural church was built between 1824 and 1830 to honour the victory of the Greek warriors against the Ottoman fleet. • Cathedral of Ayios Nikolaos The island's Cathedral is of great historical importance as it was here where the island's Independence flag was raised on 3rd April 1821. It was also here where the dead body of Paul Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte who came to Greece to fight on the side of Greeks, was kept in a barrel of rum for three whole years! Other sites worth a visit are: the War Memorial of the Spetses Navy, the Clock in Rologioú Square, and the Anargyreios Korgialeneios School. Situated in the area of Kounoupitsa, today it houses the Centre of Environmental Education. Beaches: • Ayioi Anargyroi: One of the largest beaches on the southwest of the island with clean and deep waters. It offers also water sport facilities. • Ayia Paraskevi: A sandy beach situated on the west part of the island, 12 km away from Dápia. It took its name from the near-by chapel of Ayia Paraskevi.
