Gramvoussa

The two islands, Gramvoussa and Wild Gramvoussa, are located on the tip of the homonymous peninsula in north-western Crete. Next to the first island (called “tame”Gramvoussa due to the fact that it’s easily accessible) there are the remains of an old Venetian fortress (dating back to 1579). Despite the fact that it was large enough to host 3,000 men, it was never used for some big battle. The Venetians surrendered it to the Turks in 1692.
