Why locals love it

This is the ancentral home of the most prominent Greek politician. The house was built in 19th century and bears Venizelos' personal stamp. All the spaces have retained their original form. The visitors feel that they are travelling in the past of Crete.

Why you should visit it

The restoration of the house is immaculate with great attention paid to the authentic furniture and artifacts. The guests get a very clear idea of the importance of a brilliant in terms of politics man whose actions shaped the Modern Greek History.

Special tip

Venizelos was the target of two assassination attempts and one striking exhibit is the bullet riddled car in which he was nearly killed.
