Trevisan mansion at Kokino Metohi - 2.5 out of 5 based on 2 votes

In Kokkino Metochi, near Drapanias, or more specifically at the position Trevizana, the visitors can still see the ruins of the imposing Venetian mansion of Trevisan. It was a two-storey building with the ground floor being used as a warehouse and the upper floor as a residence. The crest of the house Trevisan is engraved above the main door and the villa is the best model of a 1500s holiday house in Crete.

During the Turkish occupation of Crete, the area was a property of Ibrahim Softa, who used the villa as a tower and a bastion against the local rebels.
