The purpose of the project is to historically highlight and touristically promote five sites-stations of Eleftherios Venizelos’ life in Chania: the Residence-Museum of Eleftherios Venizelos in Chalepa, the House in Mournies in which he was born, the Museum – Headquarters of the Revolution of Therisso, the Venizelos Family Tombs in Akrotiri and the Municipal Library of Chania. These five locations create a uniform digital network of cultural routes related to the Modern Greek and European history, based on Eleftherios Venizelos.
