Erymanthos - Formerly School of Kalentzi

The area

It is a typical example of traditional local architecture in a mountainous settlement, built-in 1931 by George Papandreou while being Minister of Education from 1928 to 1932. The building will include a Folk Art Museum, a Museum with traditional agricultural tools, a historical library, a showcase of local products (oil, wine, olives, local sweets, etc.) and an Information and Interpretation Center with digital applications attractive to the visitor. The sheltered semi-open area can be used either as a resting place for visitors, or as a venue for various cultural events, conferences and screenings on issues that concern either the cultural-political heritage or the highlight of local products.

The first landed property is a ground floor landmark stone-built building with a section – because of an altitude difference – that is on one side ground floor and on the other side basement (characterization as landmark according to the Government Gazette 468 B/21-06-1994) with carved cornerstones, small cornice and tiled roof. The apertures are symmetrical on the faces, with a horizontal header. The entrance to the floors is from different levels due to ground inclination, which are connected to each other with a stone scale. The building was built in the past century and is a typical example of traditional local architecture in a mountainous settlement. The use of the building was a teaching room and is one of the 3.500 buildings that were built in 1931 by G. A. Papandreou, who was Minister of Education during El. Venizelos Government (1928-1932).
