Fytakis' Mansion

The Fytakis' Mansion has been characterised as a "work of art" and listed by the Ministry of Culture as a historic building with conservation status. It has been built during 1926-1930 and it is the first multi-storeyed building in the city,; it is one of the frist samples of use of reinforced concrete in buildings in Heraklion, destinated to middle-class residence.

A series of interesting neo-classic features have been embodied to the facades building: cornices and eaves, projections, lattices at the doors and balusters at the balcons. One of the most interesting features are the wooden street doors of the shops on the ground floor, finely decorated.

Combined with a more modern concept of construction, those features make of the building a very interesting  architectural mixture.

Initially, the building was used to house shops at the ground floor and residence appartments at the four upper floors. Later on, after the World War II, it has been used to house various activities; today it is out of use, but at least it has been saved and waits for its restoration.
