Kastoria’s Byzantine legacy enhanced by former hotel


The emblematic building of the former Xenia hotel in the northern Greek town of Kastoria, abandoned for almost three decades, will be transformed into a museum space to meet the needs of the nearby Byzantine Museum, which houses rare icons from the 12th to the 18th century. The agreement was signed on Wednesday by the Greek Public Properties Company and the Culture Ministry. [Kastoria Ephorate of Antiquities]
