Originally Venetians fortified the islet in 1579 by building a castle with 40 cannons and thus transforming it into a lethal stronghold for centuries. In the years between 1900 and 1957 human pain and sorrow was scattered around this islet. It became the colony for the lepers. Leper colony was closed on 1957 and 20 years were closed. Now fortress is open for thousands tourists from all over the World. After our visit we travel back to Aghios Nikolaos for a walk around the city centre.
