Trivia

There were two entrances to Spinalonga, one being the lepers' entrance, a tunnel known as "Dante's Gate". This was so named because the patients did not know what was going to happen to them once they arrived. However, once on the island they received food, water, medical attention and social security payments. Previously, such amenities had been unavailable to Crete's leprosy patients, as they mostly lived in the area's caves, away from civilization. See more »

best Greek production
21 February 2011 | by (greece) – See all my reviews

I would like to say that this is one of the best productions that Greece has ever done in a long time. The directing and the acting are superb and I cannot express how beautiful the scenery is in which the series takes place.

Also, happy to hear that Victoria Hislop chose Greeks to do this production cause it is worthwhile.

However it is not for all ages especially children for there are scenes not suitable for them to watch.

But overall,congratulations to this magnificent piece of work which is finally worth watching on Greek television these days.
