Our History

It was between 1830 and 1840 when the Egyptians rulers found the perfect place to built an industrial area. The Tanneries. The place was ideal due to the position. Located in the eastern part of Chania and extremely close to the city center but also in a remarkably functional place for the industry.

In the beginning of the 19th century the area was famous for the craft activity counting 80 active tanneries. Most and foremost, the area of Halepa was broadly known for being and aristocratic quarter of Chania City and it played a central role in the politics of Greece at the 19th and 20th century.
