Byzantine Museum

Location: Driopida   

The Byzantine Museum of Kythnos, Cyclades: The Byzantine and Ecclesiastical Museum of Kythnos is housed in the whitewashed church of Agios Georgios (Saint George), in the village of Driopida. The church is in good condition and distinguishes for its flat blue roof.

The museum hosts a large collection of 150 Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons, about 90 ecclesiastical books and other items, like Orthodox crosses, priest clothes, and manuscripts. Some of the icons and books are really rare, created in the 18th century by monks of Mount Athos.
