Loved this place - gives you access to additional chapels on the side of the church. The chapels have a bunch of paintings and frescos from the 17th century in them. The architecture is also incredible and historic. All this for only 2 euros -...More

A small museum with exhibits from the Mycenaean to Hellenistic Ages. The highlight for me was part of the Parian Chronicle. Entry is only 2 euros- astonishing value for all the marvellous antiquities on display.

Sometimes small museums can be disappointing, buy for €2 entry, this museum isn't. Lots of beautiful artefacts including ornately decorated pots, jewellery and some amazingly intact large statues. Staff are friendly and enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Interesting way to spend an hour or so. Easy to...More
