Historical tip: “Gazi” Athens’ historical gasworks, was established in 1857, providing coal gas to the city for 127 years. But, as coal gas was constantly loosing ground, the factory closed down in 1984. However, 2 years later Ministry of Culture declared it a historic preservable monument commissioning studies for its protection and exploitation.
