The Ecomuseum in Ano Meria opened to the public in the summer of 1988. The museum provides a cultural insight to the traditional lifestyle in the villages on the island. The museum is housed in one of the most beautiful rural residences with walls made of stone and mud without the use of plaster. This is also how the houses used to be built in order not to be discovered by the pirates in the past. The house is full of exhibitions like daily-life tools, local costumes, an old loom, panniers and jars. Visitors will also find remains of an olivepress, an oven and a primitive winepress.
