Court Arsa and Alexander Ypsilanti (1774-1882)


The (Uranus?) hill was cultivated all of grape-vines and orchards even since the time of Alexander Ypsilanti (1774-1882), who in 1775 erected near the St Spiridon Old Church, the royal residence called New Court [21] , which became Court Arsa (burnt court) after it was destroyed by fire in 1812.
