The island of Spetses retains much of the grandeur and elegance of its past, back when it was an important maritime trading center. This naval tradition is reflected in the islandís architecture. Spetses is the greenest island of the Argo-Saronic Gulf, with pine forests that hide charming pebbly beaches and rocky coves. The main town is peppered with handsome archontika (mansions), decorated with mosaic floors and pebbled courtyards. Most of these mansions belonged to captains, shipping magnates and merchants who made their fortunes during the Napoleon wars. Car use is restricted in an effort to preserve the islandís character and natural beauty. Spetses is also quite famous for its nightlife, offering a wide variety of restaurants, bars and nightclubs that extend along the waterfront.
