Portianou Café

This is the cafe in Portianou Square with the tree in front of it. It is the cafe depicted in many ANZAC photos, where the ANZAC used to rest from the summer of 1915 until the first days of January 1916. The current tree is not the one of 1915 but it has been replaced by a new one. The building is the same one, built with local soft yellow stone, and has also survived a fire. In its interior, there are many photographs of Portianou village from the time of the World War I.
