Mandraki was the naval station of Hydra during the Venetian occupation (16th to 18th century).

There were two small forts protecting the entrance of the bay. (Both are presented in this page.)
They were built around the end of the 16th century.

They have been reinforced during the Greek revolution and renovated recently, in 2008-2009.
