The Greek Consortium Heraclion Visit
Team members took part on the in-situ visit conducted at the City Walls of Heraklion, the city walls of Venetian Candia, on 29th of June. The visit was perfectly organized by the Ephorate of Antiquities of Heraklion and its main context was to inspect structural integrity of the walls. Several parts of the walls affected by differential settlements or earth pressures were identified and in some parts verified by preliminary inSAR data. In particular, the Sampionara, Vitturi and Martinengo Bastions were thoroughly examined, evaluating their structural and geotechnical conditions.
