La Ponta
La Ponta

La Ponta is located approximately one kilometer from the archaeological site of Akrotiri, in the heart of the Castle (or Kastelli). It cannot be classified as "museum" and it cannot be restricted to titles, since it is something special and one of a kind.

Specifically, it is located in a 13th-century tower, which hosts tsabouna - Greek folk wind instrument of the bagpipe family - exhibition and workshop along with traditional Greek percussion and flutes.

At the exhibition you can enjoy a basic tour of the remnants of the past that compose the cultural heritage of the place but also of its music. At the La Ponta workshop tsabouna, various traditional and ancient Greek flutes and the Cycladic drum doubaki are constructed. The manufacturing and processing method follows the various traditional techniques, with a strong emphasis on sound quality, stability of pitch and aesthetic appearance.

Daily guided tours and a series of concerts take place on its premises.
