The Simantiri mansion (Chora district Neochori)

Located in the settlement of Chora, in the region of Neohori, next to the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi, the unique 1625 mansion has been converted into a folklore museum, a genuine culture and cultural monument. We found it while exploring the narrow alleys of Chora and in this well-preserved mansion, which is preserved for eight generations now, the lady of the house Morfoula Simantiri was our guide, gracefully presenting her precious handmade embroideries. Here, you take a glimpse of everyday life in Patmos during the past centuries through furniture, paintings, photographs, traditional tools and objects used in everyday life.
