Our house is locally known as 'Villa Olof Palme'.
Prime minister Olof Palme of Sweden was a devote visitor of Crete, and our house was offered to him as a gift from the people of Mochos.
After his passing the house has been used as a museum in honor of Olof Palme.

Nowadays it's in use by us as our residence, with 2 apartments that we rent out to guests.

Here are some historical photos of Olof Palme at his (our) house, and his visits to Crete in the 1980's.

The story of Olof Palme

Olof Palme ( in full Sven Olof Joachim Palme, (born January 30, 1927, Stockholm, Sweden — died February 28, 1986, Stockholm, was a Swedish politician. He led the Swedish Social Democratic Party from 1969 – 1986 and was the prime minister of Sweden from 1969 – 1976 and 1982 – 1986.

His political career started in 1953, when Tage Erlander, the Prime Minister, employed him as his personal secretary. Already at that time Palme had formed the ideas that characterized his political work – the elimination of colonialism, the right of national self-determination, the need for a new economic world order, the fight against racism, the dream of equal rights and the democratisation of education.  
On 28 february 1986, Olof Palme was walking home from a cinema in Stockholm, with his wife, Lisbeth Palme. He was shot from close range, and passed away that night. He left behind his wife and 3 children.

His assassination is still shrouded in mystery. Several men have been pointed out as the murderer, the latest one in 2020. Many people believe that this isn't the real killer, and they think that the killer will never be found.
In many places around the world, Olof Palme still gets remembered and celebrated. Streets and buildings are named after him, and his legacy lives on.
