“Or "The Tower of Gavras"”

Ranked #16 of 26 things to do in Amorgos
Attraction details
Reviewed October 14, 2013

In the centre of Chora, you can visit this old, Venetian building of 16th century.
The exhibits are not a lot but they are so important : sculptures, altars, small statuettes, small glass bottles, grave columns etc.
But what I can't forget till now, was a huge clay vat on the ground floor of the museum, with the skeleton of a mother and her baby in it, buried in this way after they had died from cholera.
The archaeologist of the museum informed as that it was found by a farmer in the southern Amorgos, when his donkey hit the vat with its hoof and almost fall in it !
