Information

Located near the Panagia Filotitissa church in Naxos, the Ecclesiastical Folklore Museum of Filoti is a relatively new establishment, founded in 2019. Housed in a beautiful building within the parish, this museum offers visitors a glimpse into the everyday life and traditions of the region throughout the centuries.

The area where the museum stands was once owned by a feudal lord until the 18th century when it was donated to Panagia Filotitissa. The museum consists of four spacious rooms, each showcasing different exhibits that provide insights into the region's past.

In the first room, visitors will find a reconstruction of a local house's interior from the inter-war era, complete with authentic furniture and clothing displays. The second room represents a period kitchen, offering a glimpse into traditional culinary practices. The third room displays sacred relics and ecclesiastical artifacts connected to the Panagia Filotitissa church's religious traditions.

The fourth room focuses on rural life, featuring authentic objects and tools used in agricultural activities. Notable exhibits include a mill, a press, and vessels from the old olive press that operated in the area since the 18th century.

Explore the rich cultural heritage of Filoti through the museum's immersive exhibits, offering a unique perspective on the region's past and its connection to the church and everyday life.
