We looked around the museum and then viewed the 20-minute film of the history of this beautiful island. The island went through some very sad, brutal and difficult times but the people of the island never gave up. A brave & wonderful story.

The exhibition is quite small, but nevertheless interesting. When you walk along the qui, please walk all the way to this old mosque.
