~ Santorini's folklore museum ~
The folklore museum of Santorini is located of Fira at a place called Kontohori .
The museum is hosted into traditional cave houses of 1861 .
We suggest to take use small walk from the main square of Fira to discover the gem Mr. Manolis Lignos has created .
With a 3 € ticket you receive a guided tour of the museum .
It is actually the recreation of a tiny village and take a walk into the past of Santorini walking between the various shops and houses .

The main exhibits are :

* Typical cave house
* Traditional winery ( cave , wine cellar with treading vats , barrels , wine press , linens and antiwue utensils )
* Cavern ( showing evidence of the volcanic eruption from the excavation of the layers of soil )
* Traditional workshops ( carpenters , barrel makers , shoemakers and tinsmiths )
* Gallery about Santorini ( a display of works by famous artists inspired by Santorini )
* Historical archives ( lithographs , manuscripts and books from Santorini )
* Garden with seating areas among trees and flowers
* Chapel of Agios Konstantinos with its belfry and its festivities room
* Pictures of the way of living of the island a few years before
