Elounda Port

The first treatment for leprosy was introduced in the 1940s but it took 10 more years for a more effective drug against the Hansen disease. In 1957 Spinalonga's leprosy hospital was decided to terminate operation. The cured patients, were allowed to return to their families while some more severe cases were transferred to other hospital in Athens to continue treatment.
