Wildfires: Artifacts Transferred from Former Greek Royal Estate in Tatoi

ATHENS — Some artifacts of great value were transferred from the former royal summer palace in Tatoi late on Tuesday night for their protection. Culture and Sports Minister Lina Mendoni, who cut short her tour of the Cyclades islands, was also there until late in the night.

Even though the destructive fire in nearby Varybobi and the surrounding regions did not reach the inner core of the former royal estate, the transfer of the objects there was carried out as a precaution. The transfer was carried out by the Civil Protection agency in collaboration with the culture ministry, as Deputy Civil Protection and Crises Management Minister Nikos Hardalias revealed on Tuesday during the emergency briefing.

There are thousands of valuable items, including carriages, cars, works of art, antique furniture and other valuables at Tatoi.


ATHENS - Just as residents and tourists in Greece have been walking away from worry about the Coronavirus pandemic that's lingering but fading, flu has emerged early on islands in the Cyclades, taken there by travelers from the Southerm Hemisphere.
