Former royal palace at Tatoi will become a museum by 2025

·

The former royal palace, Tatoi, located outside the city centre of Athens, will become a museum open to the public by 2025.

Greece’s minister of culture and sports, Lina Mendoni, made the announcement a day after former King Constantine II was buried at the once royal estate.

According to Ekathimerini, in an interview with private broadcaster Real FM radio, Mendoni said,  “Citizens will have access to the old palaces by 2025”.

“The complete restoration of the estate will not have been done, but some programs, such as the conversion of the palace into a museum, will have been done,” she said.

“The conversion of the stables of George I into a museum will have taken place. The infrastructure will all be done.”

The palace which faces Mount Parnitha, a dense forest mountain range, was ravaged two years by a wildlife fire.

It was left blackened and derelict up until the king’s death when cleanup groups worked for hours to restore the site that was once glamorous royal territory for his funeral.
