I have a love of provincial museums - so often cash-strapped, but doing the essential work of keeping local history alive. And Galaxidi's story is an extraordinary one. Destroyed twice in the 1820s by the Ottomans in the Greek War of Independence, the city rallied...More

Spent an extremely fascinating hour at this museum. Galaxidi was Greece's main port and huge ship building area. Nothing of the industry left but a most beautiful little port. Items include beautiful paintings of many of the boats, the logs of what they carries where,...More
