Nikolaides Mansion

Two – storey building with Gothic features, Nikolaides Mansion was built between 1705 and 1796 in Chora of Patmos and is a typical example of the urban architecture of the island. Downstairs there are the fournario (galley), cisterns and the private chapel of Saint Nicholas, while the first floor consists of “hipnous” (bedrooms) and “Noda” (living room and guest host at the same time) with “ampataro” (a wooden ornate “curtain” with shelves, which also served as a storage area) as a partition between them, and the upper terraces.

After the earthquake of 1956, the mansion was severely damaged, and since 1959, after its donation by its owners to the Greek government, it was restored and organized in an exemplary way as a showroom by the Archaeological Service. The purpose of the exhibition that is hosted, is for the residents and the visitors to come into contact with the mansions and the lifestyle of the people who lived there and get to know the history of the island from prehistoric to modern times, through archaeological findings and information material. Besides its museum nature, Nikolaides Mansion hosts also cultural events.
