Panayotis D. Cangelaris - Greek Diplomat and Collector








At Kastro

The Cangelaris summer residence at the village of Kastro in Cephalonia was build in 1990 behind the church of Our Lady of the Annunciation on land purchased by Panayotis D. Cangelaris  at 1986,  almost ninety years since his great grand father Dimitri had sold their house at the quarter of Our Lady of the Revelation.

The Fortress of Saint George together with its namesake the Suburb was the capital of Cephalonia until 1757, when the seat of the government was transferred to Argostoli.  The eldest known record of a house purchase at Kastro by a member of the Cangelari family dates back to the year 1568, while this particular branch settled there permanently in 1755.

It is not an exaggeration to mention that due to its plain line, the particular attention to the detail and the deep respect for the Ionian Islands' architectural tradition, this house has become a reference as a characteristic specimen of revival of the old Cephalonian mansion in post-earthquake Cephalonia.
