In post 1373 and 1375 I started the blog about Chromitsa. Today I will continue in the courtyard D of building A/B. This large building has been build last (after 1885), as we have seen on the pictures that I found inside this building.
Plan of Chromitsa
Building C is the ruined church: here a picture of the facade. Although I do not have no knowledge about construction techniques, it is obvious that this structure did not last long. It was build in 1882 and on most pictures I have seen the building already was in a very poor condition after some years.
These two smaller pictures of the church from some years ago show that my hypotheses about the bad quality of the construction is true. The roof must have collapsed quite soon.
Today wild pigs are kept in the courtyard (D).
The courtyard D with building A/B on the left.
The gate to the courtyard, leading to area E.
When you look up a creaky balcony is dangerously hanging above you.
Now we are just outside the gate in area E with a roofed bench, water tap and a door leading to a corridor between two buildings.
Peeping through the door gives you this view: a corridor between two builldings with wooden connection between them
The water tap with the year 1885 engraved above it
A memorial stone that marks the restauration of building A/B by Tsantali in 1994
When you pass area E you will see an oven on your right and building/church G in the background
Looking up with the same oven left and the restaurated windmill (K) high up: there was an abundance of oregani at this place, which tasted well in the Meditteranean meals I made, after returning home.
