The Quarantine is situated on the south side of the harbor, in Lazareta. It’s an impressively large building, built in 1837 to keep in quarantine travelers who came to the island at the time that cholera and other diseases mowed populations. In the Cretan revolution, in 1866, it was used as a refuge for the Cretan refugees and at the end of the last century as a prison.
