We looked around the museum and then viewed the 20-minute film of the history of this beautiful island. The island went through some very sad, brutal and difficult times but the people of the island never gave up. A brave & wonderful story.

Katellorizo dosent have a great deal of tourist sites or things to do, suggest you visit or see whatever is available. Interesting place wont take long to look around.

The old mosquee is a symbol of the port and past of Kastellorizo : I was expecting more entering in it than a not so well restored interior and a tainted welcome. After paying 2 euros to have the right to enter, I focussed more...More

This is one of the two museums of little yet beautiful Kastellorizo (the other one being the archaeological museum). Its name is perhaps misleading because this is a museum dedicated chiefly to the island's turbulent and dramatic history. Despite its size, both the museum offers...More
