Folklore Museum of Afitos
The Folklore Museum of Afitos is housed in a traditional listed building dating to 1889 in the central square of the village, which was donated by the Aletras family.
There is a display of folk exhibits created on the initiative of the painter Nikos Paralis and are courtesy of the village residents.
The folklore collection includes domestic utensils, agricultural implements (for ploughing, sowing, reaping, harvesting), and pottery, which is a craft with a long tradition here. In the basement, a collection of farming tools is hosted, while on the first floor a traditional house is being presented.
Worth it to see:
• The works of the local sculptor Vassilis Pavlis that is being hosted in the museum.
• During summer time very often the building is hosting also cultural events like art & photography exhibitions.
• The traditional village of Afitos which has scenic stone-paved alleys, small fountains, traditional houses, and beautiful churches.
