The Esychakis Estate in Alikianos- Α building of great social and historical importance


  

The Esychakis Estate, Metochi Esychaki in greek, was built by the Venetians during their occupation of Crete.


Located in the village of Alikianos in Chania, it was a part of the Da Molin' s feudal estate. The building was used by the Ottomans, as well,until the general of the Greek army, Timoleon Vassos, turned it into his headquarters. Later the rich Esychakis family bought it.


The main feature of the Esychakis Estate complex is an old olive oil mill. You can also see there a warehouse for agricultural products, a huge internal yard, a Turkish hammam and a tower.


 Although Metochi Esychaki, is a building of great social and historical importance for the area, a building listed for preservation, it is a scene of decay and dereliction. 

It presents particular problems of stability. Unfortunately, the restoration of buildings listed in the preservation lists is an expensive and time-consuming venture.
