EURECA-PRO Conference 2023


26-29 Sept    Chania, Crete


The stone building, bearing today the name of the great Cretan composer Mikis Theodorakis, was built in 1912 and originally housed the Customs House in the Venetian Harbour of Chania, located between the shipyards complex and the “Grand Arsenal”. For that reason, the building was widely known as the “Old Customs House”. Recently, it has been renovated and currently functions as a cultural and convention center, known as “Mikis Theodorakis” Theatre. The composer, Mikis Theodorakis, was himself present at the official opening of the building in October 2017.

The Centre of Mediterranean Architecture, in short KAM, is an institution administered by the Municipality of Chania. It is housed in a magnificent building called Megalo Neorio, alias Arsenali or “Grand Arsenal”, which was constructed in 1585 by the Venetians. It had been used as the school of the Christian community in the late 19th century and hosted numerous theater performances (1892), the public hospital (1923) and the Chania Town Hall (1928 – 1941). Today it has been renovated completely and turned into a stunning space for events and exhibitions. It is one of the most impressive monuments at the Old Port of Chania.
