The island of Spetses is known for its nobility, cosmopolitanism and beauty. The elegant town with its famous mansions and horse-drawn carriages is reminiscent of earlier times. You can see the impressive Museum Bouboulina Laskarina which is housed in a building dating from the 17th century, the Dapia (port area), the Monastery of Aghios Nikolaos, the famous Anargyreios and Korgialeneios School, the Kastelli area and the historic Posidonion building which is now open again as a luxury hotel. Try the delicious almond macaroons and then take a boat trip round the island. The restaurants and boutique hotels housed in old the town houses are exceptionally good.
