It's the only "museum" in Kardamili, so it is difinitely worth visiting. It gives you a very clear picture of how an old complex which belonged to a very strong family of the area looked like, how it was developed etc.

For the princely sum of €2 each, the ‘Old Town’ experience is excellent value with the nicely restored tower house complex available to look around. Whilst not a life changing attraction, well worth a visit and the pleasant walk to get there

Interesting and inexpensive historical site that provides some insight into the history of the region surrounding the town. It was an hour well spent, although some of the artwork that was on display seemed a bit out of place in this setting.

While vacationing in Stoupa, this is well worth taking a side trip to visit. It was the most reasonably priced site in my 3 week road trip at 2 euro. It made for great pictures and visiting in October, we were the only ones there....More
