During the 19th century, Santorini experienced strong industrial growth. Messaria became the center of industrial development on the island thanks to factories such as the Markezinis Knitting Factory and the alcohol factory (kanava) of Antonios Venetsanos, with its three arches in a row, in the center of town, next to the mansion of Saliveros. The alcohol factory building, with its tall, well preserved smokestack, has been declared a historical landmark and is considered a monument to the newer trades in the Modern Greek period.
