ERGOSTASIO NAXOS EST. 1928
Along with his nephew, Ioannis Sakelliadis, Markos Vallindras continued to run the olive press for many years despite the declaration of war.
Today the olive press belongs to Ioannis Sakelliadis’ daughter, Mina Veroni, who appointed two architects, T. Billi and M. Magnisali for the purposes of its restoration.
It is of interest to note that the building was originally considered to have existed in Venetian times as a tower belonging to the House of Kokkou.
The activities of the Vallindras family, and subsequently, the Sakelliadis family, played a major role in the financial and cultural development of the area.
