The visual dialogue of the contemporary works with the monumental space, as well as the the Museum’s collection, is enriched with selected tombstones from Palatine Anthology, poems, as well as treasures from texts of Ag.

Memeto (a)mori bis 31 Oct

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
