Overview

A unique museum at Ellinikon village, the birthplace of the internationally well known Greek sculptor Theodoros Papayiannis. His work although depicts the tradition of Epirus, is also modern and includes sculptures with ecological meaning or made with recycled material. Even the road to the village is very interesting with some works of art "exhibited" alongside. A visit to the museum will certainly please both adults and kids. Free entrance.

A very original sculptor with modern pieces such as grand totems from recycled material but also some conventional busts as well. The garden is full of other sculptors work and the road leading to the museum too. A very inspiring ambience, Highly recommended!
