drakospito
The logo of our company is inpired by “Drakospita” which are the widely known ancient monuments of Karystia
Their common features are the precipitous location in which they are situated, the contraction details of masonry and the way of their housing. Large heavy slates converge in layers between two opposite walls in order to create a pyramidal roof.
There are many theories about the use, purpose, construction and dating of “Drakospita”.

Of a great importance is “Dtrakospito” on Ochi Mountain. That was an ancient temple dedicated to the worship of Zeus and Hera, a shelter house for quarrymen and Roman solgers guarding the quarries. It is dated from the 6th to the 2nd-1st century BC
