Spetses Island

Spetses was the basis for the island Phraxos (Spetses) in John Fowles 1966 major novel The Magus. The novel narrator, Nicholas D' Urfe, describes the island as he approaches it for the first time: "Phraxos was beautiful…not just pretty picturesque, charming - it was simply and effortlessly beautiful. It took my breath away when I first saw it, floating like a majestic black whale in an amethyst evening sea.
