The Folk Museum of Folegandros

FOLEGANDROS

THE FOLK MUSEUM

Ano Meria, the island’s only other village besides Hora, has kept its strictly agricultural character. Here, in an old farmhouse, you can see what a traditional farm complex was really like, with its storage cellar, outdoor oven, olive press and - a Folegandros phenomenon – walled lemon trees. The winter wind blows so fiercely that the locals erect high stone walls around each one to protect them.
