Folklore Museum in Santorini
Santorini Folklore Museum: The Folklore Museum of Santorini is located in an old cave house that dates back to 1861. This one-of-its-kind museum showcases a matured winery along with priceless artifacts made by indigenous carpenters and tinsmiths. The museum also boasts of a well-stocked library with numerous books and manuscripts of the Aegean world. This impressive museum is the brainchild of Manolis Lignos and it is in many ways a perfect replica of a quintessential Santorini village.
There is also a chapel inside, the Chapel of Agios Konstantinos, and a visit to this chapel will provide a fascinating insight into the wonderful church heritage of Santorini. A visit to the museum offers significant insight into the culture, tradition, and heritage of the island of Santorini. Of special interest is a traditional house, which is a perfect replica of the caved dwellings that are found in this place.
