HISTORY History of Spetses Greek Islands Saronic Greece

The history of Spetses dates back over 10,000 years. The first signs of human life date from the Middle Stone Age, around 8000 BC. The collapse of Lerna State led to the decline of the island.

In the 18th century, once more the island provided shelter to many Albanian-speaking Christians who fled Peloponnese after its occupation by the Ottomans.

During the Orlov incidents (1768-1774) they sided with the Russians, and in 1770 the Turks, in retaliation, destroyed their settlement completely.

The island was re-inhabited in 1774, when new settlers arrived from the Peloponnese coast.
