Tatoi Estate among 7 Most Endangered

tatoi estateThe Greek former royal residence in Tatoi is among the 14 monuments that joined the short list and that claim to be included in the final catalog with the seven most endangered monuments and sites in Europe.
This catalog is a new initiative of Europa Nostra which, in collaboration with the European Investment Bank (EIB), decided to locate the seven most endangered European monuments and sites and put them under its protection.
The 7 Most Endangered is inspired by a successful program of the US National Trust for Historic Preservation, based in Washington, which will identify a priority list of heritage sites in danger and will propose concrete rescue plans indicating what could and should be done to save those sites, as reported in Europa Nostra’s official website.
On Greece’s side, the Greek Environment and Culture Society proposed the estate of Tatoi and the Diolkos of Corinth to be included in the catalog.
The propositions throughout Europe were more than forty, fourteen of which were chosen to enter the short list.
The final results with the seven most endangered monuments will be announced during Europa Nostra’s 50th anniversary Congress in Athens on June 16, at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
If the Tatoi estate manages to make it to the seven finalists, the former royal residence, which is heavily affected by time and ignorance, will be under the protection of Europe’s leading cultural heritage organization.
Tatoi is a densely wooded area on the southeast-facing slope of Mount Parnitha, located 27 km from the Acropolis. In the past, it served as the summer palace and 10,000 acre estate of the former Greek Royal Family and is the birthplace of King George II.
