GDM Megaron, was built in the mid 30’s by the commercial enterprise Fytaki-Kasapaki, who were traders in citron which was at its peak at that time. Its foundations were built on the seaside Venetian walls “Cortina Dei Consiglieri”. Fytaki-Kasapaki made a huge profit by selling Citron to England, for the traditional Christmas Pudding. They decided to construct the Megaron, after being very profitable in the Citron Business. However, their ambitious plan to create their own autonomous plant of sweet peel was boycotted by competing industries which purchased their produce from Corsica. Shortly after, an incurable disease of the citron tree, Phyloxera contaminated the trees of the area and destroyed them completely. All the prominent Heraklion families resided in the Megaron. Its ground floor housed the Heraklion society where affluent residents, government representatives and commercial trading houses gathered. Dance evenings, social gatherings and charity events were held there. Towards the end of WWII, the building was severely damaged from an explosion in a German Vessel. The building was renovated in recent years, and operates as a hotel since November 2003.
