    Sinarades Greece Kerkyra Island Corfu

This museum is housed in a traditional twofloor building in Sinarades. Each item has been collected by the educator and researcher Nikos Paktites, who dedicated his life to the protection and rescue of folk tradition. Items on display include the recreation of an old village bedroom, collections of farming implements, traditional Corfiot garments, kitchen utensils, church items, shadow theatre figurines, pottery objects, and works of art. Sinarades is an officially protected traditional village with flagstone alleys, and building elements typical of Corfiot folk architecture: vaulted arches, curved doorways at street level, gateways with beautifully carved marble pilasters, and exterior stone stairways giving on to upper-floor roofed balconies.
