Photographer's Note

I'm very proud to introduce to all you the oldest house of Chalkis! :)

The photographing of this house is very hard because the house located at a very very narrow alley with ugly house apartments all over and often, cars parked outside it! On the other hand, the house infront of it hides the sun and you must be there a few minutes before the sunset to take a photo with good lighting condition.

This house is over 2 centuries old. I don't extactly it's history. Rumors said that this house owned from a very rich Turk bey or another turk important people when the town was under turkish occupation (before 1832 when the town and the complete island of Evia liberated from Turks) and after the liberation passed to a rich Chalkis citizen.

Now, this glorious house and one of the sights of Chalkis it's entirely abandoned and it's a shame that the authorities of the city doesn't something to save it! :(
