A few words about Palataki..
Above the port of Limenaria, on top of a hill, stands the imposing “Palataki” (small palace), which seems as if taken out of a fairytale.
It is a building designed by the world-renowned Italian architect Arigoni, in the early 20th century and was used as the headquarters of the German company Speidel, who was operating the mines at the time.
In its courtyard, which is surrounded by a pine forest, there is a small chapel and dispersed sculptures of the Thassian sculptor Lovoulos.
It is a rectangular in shape two-store building with two turrets on its narrow sides.
In the east and west side and at the center of the roof, towering attics make it look very imposing.
Rightly the state has included it in the ‘Monument of Modern Times’ and a preserved piece of art requiring special protection.
