Description

Extracts from the Explanatory reports – Decisions for the buildings' characterization as monuments of the modern times.

"The region of Aghios Miron is at a 14 km distance from Heraklion. The village is built on two hills and is visible by the whole region, dominating it…

In the village's central street, a few meters from the great church of Saint Miron an old traditional residence is preserved until this day. It is a two-storey building, some parts of which are lodged under a tiled wooden roof while others have an attic.

The building is developed in levels, following the ground's formation. A small yard and three entrances are formed in this way. The habitation consists of two units, the main residence and the auxiliary spaces. The building was constructed on the first decades of the 20th century, according to oral witnesses.

The street facade is structured symmetrically, featuring evident late neoclassicism elements, such as stone panels, frames, galleries, corbels

Extracts from the Explanatory reports – Decisions for the buildings' characterization as monuments of the modern times.

"The region of Aghios Miron is at a 14 km distance from Heraklion. The village is built on two hills and is visible by the whole region, dominating it…

In the village's central street, a few meters from the great church of Saint Miron an old traditional residence is preserved until this day. It is a two-storey building, some parts of which are lodged under a tiled wooden roof while others have an attic.

The building is developed in levels, following the ground's formation. A small yard and three entrances are formed in this way. The habitation consists of two units, the main residence and the auxiliary spaces. The building was constructed on the first decades of the 20th century, according to oral witnesses.

The street facade is structured symmetrically, featuring evident late neoclassicism elements, such as stone panels, frames, galleries, corbels with an elaborate railing.

On the ground-floor, the orifices bear stone panels, a cornice, and a stone discharging arch, while the shutters are wooden and nailed. The main entrance presents special morphological interest, since it is crowned by a singular gable. On its stone case, formulated elements of the late neoclassicism coexist, whereas onthe gable there are elements borrowed from the oriental art. There has also been a formulation with neoclassical elements on the window next to the main entrance. The orifices have not been placed on strict symmetry axes, obviously in order to better serve the building's interior spaces.

On the building's south-eastern side, there is an entrance with a stone arched case that leads to the yard. In the small yard there is a large traditional oven with chiseled stone elements, a well, flower-beds formed of chiseled stones and stone tiles. In addition, in the building's interior, there are two large fireplaces, niches (where a jug could be placed), chiseled stone stairs and a wooden ontas (small elevated room)."

The buildings operating as traditional lodgings have been characterized as monuments of the modern times by the Direction of Modern and Contemporary Architectural Heritage..
