About Papadiamantis House
The Papadiamantis House is a museum in Skiathos town dedicated to the writer Alexandros Papadiamantis who lived and worked there.
Alexandros Papadiamantis (1851-1911) was a writer who was born on Skiathos, he had a career as a journalist in Athens and then returned in 1908 and died in this very house.
His nearly 200 short stories, mostly about Greek island life, assured him a major reputation in Greece. The Papadiamantis House museum is like a shrine containing his personal possessions and tools of his writing trade and it really gives an insight to what life on the island would have been like at the time. As it’s a realtively small house with not much to see it’ll probably only take 20 minutes to see the whole place.
The entrance fee is just 1.5€ for adults and free for kids. There’s no information in English around the building but there are signs in Greek for those that can read it, alternatively get yourself a translation app on your phone and read the information that way.
