The Museum of Alexandros Papadiamantis, in the homonymous square in the heart of the city of Skiathos, just a few meters from the harbour, is housed in the building that was the family house where the great Greek author spent much of his life and left his last breath.
It is a building of 1860, created by the priest Adamantios, the author's father, and has been declared by the Ministry of Culture in 1965 as a historically listed building. The two-storey house -characteristic of the local folk architecture- has a basement (used as a storeroom and cellar) and an upper level (where the main areas of the house are located).
Upstairs of the house-museum the visitor can observe the habitable spaces of the house. Basically, there are 3 rooms: the hall with the old sofa and the characteristic desk of Papadiamantis on which some of his personal items such as inkwell and ink pen, the pen holder, some documents, etc. are kept, the author’s bedroom and the “daily” room with the fireplace.
