The Armata reenactment lights up the sky!

Be prepared to perform your starring role in the dramatised play of the burning of the Armata ship on Spetses island!

Since 1931, the naval battle of Spetses (8 September 1822) has been reenacted each year as an attempt to recreate the defeat of the Turkish fleet. Two-week artistic events take place including exhibitions of paintings, concerts, traditional dances and theatrical performances, reaching their peak with the dramatisation of the sea battle. Real ships are used, and a model ship is built especially for the occasion, in order to be burnt in the sea among a massive firework display!

If you like crowds, noise, and fireworks, this is the time to visit Spetses in the Saronic Gulf!
