Byzantine gallery & sculptures of Perantinos

In Marpissa, one can admire Byzantine art in one part of the museum. The other part houses the sculptures of Nikos Perantino, a native of Marpissa. He bequeathed 192 of his works to the community. Every summer, an exhibition of paintings is organised in his honour. A folk art museum will shortly open in the centre of the village. The hill of Agios Antonios (alt. 200m) rises to the east of Marpissa with, on its summit, the monastery and the picturesque church of that name. A little lower down are the remains of a Venetian castle. The view from the 16th century monastery is spectacular. We suggest you climb the hill and surrender yourself to the magic of the surroundings.
