The "Eleftherios Venizelos Centre for Independence" is located in the village of Therisso. In 1905, Venizelos, the revered Cretan politician, set up a revolutionary assembly here demanding immediate union with mainland Greece. As a result of this assembly and the ensuing riots, Prince George, the High Commissioner of Crete, resigned. Finally, in 1913, Venizelos's dream of union with Greece was realised. The house (his mother's) is to the left in the middle of the village, and has been preserved, but no official status is given to it.
