  • Zakynthos, c is Beach and pool, as well as tours in quad, but not only... as there are few museums, go see at least this one, which contains mainly frescoes and icons saved from the earthquake of 1953. Even if few English translations and nothing d interactive to make it attractive. We have at least the right to photograph without flash.

  • The Byzantine Museum of Zakynthos was founded in 1960 and is spread over 3 floors of this neoclassical building is impressive. The Museum shows the development of Greek art from the Byzantine period to the present, an excellent collection of artifacts from the Byzantine period to the 19th century. Amazing sculptures carved of wood, frescoes from the 13th and 12th and the 17th and 18th centuries, sculptures from the Hellenistic and Byzantine Byzantine, prehistoric collection displayed on 6 rooms: two dedicated to the Byzantines icons, with two rooms display authentic frescoes dating from the 15-17 and two other rooms Present 18th-century oil paintings of Greek artists. The model of the city of Zakynthos years particularly impressive. 1930-1950.

  • I think you should visit the Museum. It takes a little time, and a chance to touch the hard falls church history not so much ... Youth with "POW-dyc-tydyc" in the head here will not on their own, they'd better in Laganas, and those for whom history in General and church art in particular are important, highly recommend to leave here an hour of your precious time.

  • Nothing to watch really. 4€ for entrance and 15 mins later you're at the exit doors. Only paints and IKON's from ruins of the church to see.
  • Very interestine. Make sure to stare at the map on the left where you give your ticket as it explains how the Greek culture was subsumed into Roman and later Constantinople.
  • Nothing much for 4€.
  • Very nice place to learn about history
  • There are some works of merit (which is why cheque 2 ⭐ ️) but the cost of 4 euro is really not related to the quality and quantity of the works. Museum on two floors, it only takes 20 minutes to visit. Today I was only there because it was a rainy day. Two of the rooms on the second floor were partly lit. At the request of explanation I was told by the staff that the lights were broken. This did not allow to watch the best works. Shortly before finishing the visit were turned on some lights from a Manager. The impression I had is that you have switched on when you have reached a greater number of visitors. As far as I'm concerned I DON'T RECOMMEND visiting.
