The Governor of the Ionian Islands signed the inclusion of the protection and promotion of the Vaulted Tomb of Tzanaton Kefalonia in the Operational Program “Ionian Islands”

With special satisfaction, the Regional Governor signed the inclusion of this project with a start date of the operation on June 10, 2021 while an end date is set for December 28, 2023 .

The beneficiary of the deed is the Directorate for the Restoration of Ancient Monuments (code 1010802).

The Regional Governor expressed her satisfaction for the development of the integration of this project after regressions, ambiguities and entanglements that deprived Kefalonia and our Region of the emergence of the great monument, namely the Mycenaean Vaulted Tomb at Lofer, Lozos which was built in 1350 BC.

The coveted project includes archaeological works, documentation and promotion of the Vaulted Tomb, forced expropriation or direct purchase of real estate for archaeological purposes, as well as a landscaped route from the entrance to the monument .
