Spetses played an important role during the Greek War of Independence helping the struggle of the Greeks against the Ottomans with warships and gunpowder. The most famous fighter from Spetses was Lascarina Bouboulina. Her house, close to the new port (Dapia), has now turned into a private museum and gives a clear view of a rich 18th-century house in Spetses.
