Although derelict for a number of years, during the 1930â€™s the Megaron was the centre of political, social, financial and philosophical life in the city and prefecture in general. It was built in the mid 30â€™s by the commercial enterprise Fytaki-Kasapaki, who was traders in citron which was at its peak at that time. Its foundations were built on the seaside Venetian walls â€œCortina Dei Consiglieriâ€. And during that decade the whole beach was used for swimming by daring residents of Heraklion, who started hesitantly and sometimes secretly to appear. In front of the Megaron some distance out to sea, was a protruding shipwreck of Turkish .Whoever managed to swim out to it was considered an excellent swimmer. The jetty, which was under construction during that period, in time changed the direction of the waves thus benefiting the Megaron. There in the bay, the owners had set up an outdoor factory. There a skilful worker cut the citron into two equal parts in his left hand with a sharp knife, without cutting or injuring himself, and threw it into a barrel. When it was filled to the top, he poured in sea water then covering it in salt. After this initial process the citron was sent mainly to England for its final treatment in the preparation of sweet peel with which the English prepared their traditional Christmas pudding.
One of the two citron traders, Fytakis, was originally involved in the fruit and vegetable trade as a wholesale grocer and later went into citron trade.
Citron was in great demand from foreign buyers with prices constantly on the increase, not only day to day but often during the same day. It was priced at 28-30 drachmas an Oka (1.280 grams) when the average daily wage was only 20-25 drachmas. In this way they made a huge profit and they decided to invest in the construction of the Megaron. However, their ambitious plan to create their own autonomous processing and production plant of sweet peel was the beginning of their downfall. Foreign industries boycotted Cretan citron and purchased their produce from Corsica. The most remarkable cultivation centre was the Municipality of Lagados, especially the villages of Avdou, Potamies, Gonies and Sfendili. This whole area experienced moments of great prosperity during the 20â€™s.
However, as it is always bound to happen, poverty took its turn. An incurable disease of the citron tree, Phyloxera, â€œthe citron cancerâ€ contaminated the trees of the area and destroyed them completely. It was the decade of the 30â€™s. The Megaron rose imposingly. All the prominent Heraklion families resided there. Its ground floor housed the Heraklion society where affluent residents, government representatives and commercial trading houses gathered. They were the ones who determined the financial status of the island. Dance evenings, social gatherings and charity events were held every Saturday on the ground floor of the building, while the Triantafilaki dancing school saw to the dance training of its members. During the German occupation the â€œTheotokopoulos associationâ€ housed the Town council in its quarters. Towards the end of the German occupation, a fleet of German ships sailing away from Heraklion towards Africa, was the target of an English bomber attack and was destroyed. One of the ships, however, loaded with was supplies, found shelter in the harbor of Heraklion. The explosion that followed severely damaged, among others, the Megaron. Thus the entirety people who wrote he history of the Megaron left and its glory left with them. Luckily this unique building, both for Heraklion and the whole island of Crete, was radically renovated and transformed into a magnificently luxurious hotel. We welcome you to Megaron which will impress you with its every detail and charm you every step of the way.
