Historical attraction

Very small house with a historical importance for Greek people with a very small fee. No so friendly attraction for foreigners.

Papadiamantis was not just an intellectual writer but rather a philosopher who influenced the culture of a difficult era in Greece, more than anyone else. He wrote more than 150 novels and poems and many of these have been translated to English. His house is the first place one must visit when in Skiathos.

Very small and not loads to see but it has history and was interesting to just look around. Only cost 1.5 euros each so fine for a little look around.

It's high interest resort especially for papadiamantis fans. It's free of charge for students. It's shows the conditions that affected the writing style of papadiamantis. The lack of tourist's descriptions is a negative fact.

A fascinating insight into the Islands most famous export. Well worth the few euros for entry and a little insight into life on the Island in days of yore

Lovely little house hard to believe people lived there with so little comfort. Interesting but much of the written work had no English explanation so a little disappointing not to know what was written.
