AEGEAN ISLANDS

First glance

The dark historic memories cast their shadow on that almost uninhabited islet, only 2.5nm away from Lavrio. The memories are even harder for the thousands of Greeks, who had a relative that survived or died in the “disciplinary” hellholes. From 1912 to 1952, Makronisos operated first as a concentration camp, then as a quarantine for the refugees and finally as an exile islet for Greek political prisoners. In 1989 it was characterized by the Ministry of Culture as a civil war historic place/ monument. Construction and other interventions were prohibited and all surviving buildings on the island were considered preserved.
