MEGARO GYZI

Gyzi Megaron, one of the few 17th-century old family mansions to have survived the earthquakes of 1956, was donated by the Catholic Diocese of Santorini for the acvvives of the Cultural Centre. The Manor΄s front entrance decorates the Gyzi family crest. The Gyzi Megaron is a unique building of its era in Santorini, since the ground floors develop around a pavo, which aributes a disvncvve architecture due to the inner open area created; this is partly covered with an elegant cross-shaped dome and partly uncovered.

With the support and contribuvon from the Catholic Diocese of Santorini it has been carefully restored in a way that it retains much of its original character in an effort to preserve those disvnct features of the local architectural heritage. The building was modified minimally to meet the funcvonal demands of a Cultural Centre accommodavng exhibivon space and facilives for cultural events. The GYZI MEGARON Cultural Centre, since its establishment and parvcularly during the tourist season, organizes the GYZI MEGARON FESTIVAL, which includes cultural events such as concerts, music recitals, theatrical performances, photographic and painvng exhibivons and book presentavons, which aract the interest of the local residents and the numerous tourists of the island.
