DODECANESE ISLANDS: €42.5M FOR RESTORATION OF HISTORIC MONUMENTS
The Greek Culture Ministry has announced a 42-million-euro project for the protection, preservation and promotion of archaeological sites and cultural monuments on the Dodecanese islands.
The project – to be financed by the Recovery Fund – includes works on a number of sites dating back to Medieval, Byzantine and Ottoman times that are located on the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Leros, Halki, Kalymnos, Symi and Agathonisi.
During an inspection visit on Rhodes, Culture Minister Lina Mendoni announced the launch of preservation works in the Medieval city.
The project foresees the promotion of the archaeological site of Pervola through the connection of its ancient remains with the medieval gardens of Kastelo and the creation of an integrated 4.9-acre historic center in the heart of the Medieval settlement.
