The Christian Museum of Amorgos (also known as the Ecclesiastical Museum of Amorgos) is a house to important relics and remains that have been collected by the island’s residents throughout the decades! First established in 2010 with donations from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the museum (named after previous archbishop Christodoulos) has an array of quality works revolving around iconography, metalwork, sculpture, and embroidery!

Spot its characteristic blue door right before entering its interior space, with its semi-dark wall designs only adding to its already mystifying aura! One part of the museum features large-scale marble sculptures and various church objects, like candlesticks, holy grails, and censers, dating back from the classic era up until the Byzantine and Medieval Times!

On top of that, the museum has a handful of mesmerizing ecclesiastical icons of Orthodox Christianity, including a wooden-carved depiction of the Epitaph, as well as the Crucifixion of Christ! Plus, Christian visitors will love the manuscripts showcased, such as hand-written church music papers, along with upper-tier icons from nearby islands!

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 13:00 and from 17:00 to 21:00!
