  • Wonderful Museum amazing tour worth the episkeyteitai. we found out quite by accident, and if in the beginning we looked quite away from batsi our spotlessly was interested very good reviews of permanent residents. Access was easy us tour was was amazing because it put us in conditions of past decades how organizing the whole process in Mills. Mr. Helmis was amazing, our host, the filomatheia and the asygasto passion to pass the knowledge they had acquired to their guests. At no point oh from the tour that made us. I wish there were other similar museums in Cyclades, real gems for each island's tourism.
