SANTORINI WORTH SEEING FOLKLORE MUSEUM FIRA

FOLKLORE MUSEUM FIRA
The folklore museum of Santorini is located in Fira at a place called Kontohori. The museum is hosted into traditional cave houses of 1861. We suggest to take the small walk from the main square of Fira to discover the gem Mr Manolis Lignos has created. With a 3 euros ticket you receive a guided tour of the museum. It is actualy the recreation of a tiny village and take a walk into the past of Santorini walking between the various shops and houses.

The main exhibits are:

  • Typical cave house
  • Traditional winery (cave, wine cellar with treading vats, barrels, wine press, linens and antiwue utensils)
  • Cavern (showing evidence of the volcanic eruption ftom the excavation of the layers of soil)
  • Traditional workshops (Carpenters, Barrel makers, Shoemakers and Tinsmiths)
  • Gallery about Santorini (a display of works by famous artists inspired by Santorini)
  • Historical archives (Lithographs, Manuscripts and Books from Santorini)
  • Garden with seating areas among trees and flowers
  • Chapel of Agios Konstantinos with its belfry and its festivities room
  • Pictures of the way of living on the island a few years before.
