A truly imposing three-story building constructed in 1780, the Mansion of Lazaros Koundouriotis is one of the most important sights in Hydra! Koundouriotis, a great figure in the Greek War of Independence, the country’s naval forces, and the island of Hydra, helped the revolution by donating most of his family’s fortune to support the cause and used this space as a meeting point for Greek fighters.

A descendant of the Koundouriotis family decided to grant the mansion to the Historical and Ethnological Society of Greece in 1979, now operating under the auspices and the overview of the National Historical Museum! It houses lots of family antiques, including paintings, old furniture, and tableware, as well as traditional costumes and a grandiose knitting loom! Plus, there is a gift shop on-site, with posters, cards, and other souvenirs.

The Lazaros Koundouriotis Mansion is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 14:00 and 17:30 to 20:30, March to October!
