The Kyriakos Venizelos block of flats is an example of a combination of old and new architectural forms.

  1. Modern and Contemporary era (1821 - )


    1928 Constructed

  2. Ottoman era (1453- 1821)


  3. Byzantine era (331 AC- 1453)

What I can see

A listed building with only its facades preserved. The architect, Konstantinos Kitsikis, combined the solidity of modernistic volumes with the decorative elements of eclecticism and neoclassicism.

What I can't see

It was built on the site of a previous house, which was owned by Eleftherios Venizelos’ son, Kyriakos. The new building passed on to his descendants, and in recent decades has had several owners.
