Folklore Museum of Afitos

Location: Afitos   

The Folklore Museum in Afitos, Halkidiki: Afitos is one of the most beautiful villages of Halkidiki and ideal for your summer vacation. Right at the centre of the square lies the Folklore Museum of Afitos, an interesting place to get some insight about the village's tradition. The museum was established in 1980 by Nikos Paralis and the local Folklore Club.

It is housed in a traditional stone building from the 19th century donated by Alevras family, for this specia purpose. Most of the exhibits were also donated by the villagers and includes daily utensils, tools of traditional jobs (baker, beekeper, cooper, winemaker, fisher, horseshoer, carpenter, shepherd and other professions), old costums and photographs.

The museum also hosts works of the sculptor Vassilis Pavlis. In summer, there are also art and photography exhibitions. Stone and wood dominates in the interior decoration of the museum, which typically represents a traditional mansion of Halkidiki.
