City: Kranidi



Traditional settlement

The number of two storey, stone built mansions and the settlement with carved wooden ornaments and beautiful wall paintings are the last surviving traces of what was then the wealth of the city Kranidi. Stone courtyards with whitewashed walls and beautiful laid paving stones, cisterns, fountains, ornate and alcoves make the place a living museum of traditional architecture. This unusual style is instigated in the fully restored windmills, olive press with its massive millstones, the well preserved, narrow cobblestone streets and the wild beauty of the steep road which leads to the Pigadi tou Pirgou – The Well Of The Tower. The specially adorned city center is famous for its unique architectural buildings  which house, among other things, the Public Library and the Town Hall, while incredible treasures and relics are kept in the Folklore Museum.
