vasilikiang 11 Oct 2011Luxurious even todayA very interesting museum only few metres from Dapia, the port of Spetses. This is actually the second home of the Greek heroine and has many private things inside. This place was used as the home of a family, descendant of Bouboulina, who was living there till a couple of decades ago. Then they decided to move their home to the ground floor and turn the upper floors as a museum. Only the first floor works as a museum, the second floor, where the bedrooms were, is still under renovation. The first floor has a large sitting room, a study room and even a hiding place, where the family would hide in case of war or pirate attack. The furniture are pretty impressive and very luxurious for that time, even for today. The ceiling has nice carved designs and it was ordered in Venice, as many other furniture in there. The tour guide is excellent and very informative. It would be nice to have some organized tours in English, but after finishing the Greek tour, the guide will explain you all in English, she was very helpful. You will recognize the place because outside the house there is a canon.
