Directions to Vorres Museum
Created in 1983, the Vorres Museum and its collections cover 2000 years and are divided into two main sections. The first section constitutes a museum of contemporary Greek art, in which paintings and sculptures by leading Greek artists of the second half of the 20th century are on display. The second section comprises a group of four traditional village houses and the remnants of a stable that date back to the early 19th century. These feature peasant artifacts, Greek carpets, ceramics, icons, rare furniture and antiquities.
The typically Greek courtyards and gardens of the museum offer a special attraction where fountains and antiquities create unique Greek aesthetic harmony. With over 800 trees and flowering bushes, it features the best that the Greek and the Mediterranean flora have to offer.
The whole Vorres Museum complex serves as a means of convincing contemporary Greeks to save and preserve their national heritage. Having taken over 40 years to complete the museum, it is considered one of the most beautiful and original of its kind in the world.
