Trevisan mansion at Kokino Metohi
(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.
