Post-Byzantine Art Museum
Post-Byzantine Art Museum

The imposing and extremely impressive Byzantine Art Museum building can be found on the central and busy Dionisios Solomos Square, in the heart of Zakynthos town.

In the two-floor building there are collections of byzantine, cretan, heptanisian and zakynthian style, part of the Heptanisian School and the Renaissance Art in Zakynthos. Among others you will have the chance to admire paintings and hagiographies of the cretan school, woodcuts from the byzantine times up to the 19th century (the woodcut temples of the Pantokratoras and Agios Dimitrios churches, saved from the earthquakes on the island, stand out), sculptures from the hellenistic, byzantine and post-byzantine period, wall paintings from the 12th, 13th, 17th and 18th centuries, as well as works by Damaskinos, Kalergis, Tzanis, Tsonis, Doxaras and Koutouzis.

The exhibits that attract most visitors are the gilt, woodcut temple from the Agios Dimitrios Church by Kolas in 1960 and the litany of the Agios Charalampos relic from the Agios Charalampos church, by Ioannis Korais in 1756.
