Crooked house

omalos hania chania

This house is found at the Omalos plateau, near the entrance of the Samaria Gorge. Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to how it got into this state?

The answer will be posted later in the week (along with more photos).


  1. Blimey, that's crooked! My guess would be an earthquake is to blame.

  2. I would go with Earthquake as well...How come they have not brought it down anyway? I would definetely want to explore the inside if i was 12 :-D :-D :-D

  3. Let me see...
    1. Earthquake
    2. Explosion
    3. Car crash (close to the road)

  4. Maria, I'm betting earth quake as well. Your chosen title of "crooked house" reminded me of this old Nursery rhyme that your British and Scottish readers might recall:

    There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
    He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.

    He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
    And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

  5. Such an evocative photo! Feel the tension & surrender? Aloha-
