Hatzikyriakio Childcare Institution

Founded in 1889 by Ioannis Hatzikyriakos and his wife Marigo, the Hatzikyriakio Childcare Institution, or Hatzikyriakio Orphanage, was built to support orphaned and homeless girls in Greece.

Housed in an imposing neoclassical building, this listed structure was severely damaged during the earthquake of 1999. Closed since then, it will reopen once it is fully renovated.
