Hani of Gravia is located in the town of Gravia, opposite the temple of St. Athanasius. Today’s building is an imitation of the then-constructed building, which was brick and collapsed, a faithful copy of it, with all the spaces that had the original inn. Hani of Gravia is open to visitors and there is a museum where every hour is projected with the representation of the battle. Opposite there is the bust of the hero of the Battle of Odysseus Androutsos, but also a monument with the names of the other 117 fighters who fought with him.
