Those districts show how the town has expended over the year and how its centre has moved. The actual centre of the town is Dapia which is also the main port and the oldest centre is Baltiza, a fishing settlement which is the old harbour . All districts offer beautiful architecture of Greece.
Spetses older form Spetsai is an island in Greece. Until 1948, it was part of the old prefecture of Argolidocorinthia that is now split into Argolis and Corinthia. In ancient times, it was known as Pityoussa and later as Petses. The town is the only settlement on the island and was one of the two only provinces in Greece that has fewer than five settlements and two municipalities. It is presently an independent municipality. Ferries arrive regularly from Piraeus and Plaka near Leonidi and Napflion on the Peloponnese. Use of motor vehicles are severely restricted on the island, so the public transportation system is generally provided by horse & carriage and water taxis. Some conventional taxis and buses are in operation, but they require a special license.
