The old mansions of Kastoria were built during a period when commerce with Venice and other cities on the Adriatic Coast was flourishing. The 17th and 18th centuries were particularly prosperous times for the people of Kastoria.
One of them has been converted into a folk art museum. This one, is the mansion of the Nerantzi Aivatzis family, built in the 16th or 17th century in Kastoria’s Dolco district. It is sumptuously furnished and displays ornaments, kitchen utensils, and various tools of that period. These exhibits, no matter how dusty, show the life of Kastorian merchants of the 17th-18th centuries.
V1: Door knocker of the mansion
V2 and V3: Two images of the kitchen.
V4: Kiosk. Not actually a kiosk, but a siiting room with plenty of light and panes to look through.
