Vertzagio Folk Museum
The Vertzagio Folk museum in the charming village of Pigadakia is a reconstruction of a traditional Zakynthian house furnished and decorated with elegant and original pieces.Upon entering the Vertzagio Folk Museum you have the impression that time has stopped still back in the day of your grandparents and great grandparents. 200 years of history unfold before you reminding you how different and how difficult everyday live was for our ancestors. The bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining room are represented exactly as they would have been with all of the everyday items and utensils that were required for cooking, milling and tools that were used within and outside the home. You can also see old newspapers, money, linen and even school desks. Outside there is the original machinery that was once used to grind wheat into flour, press grapes into wine and also to process olives into olive oil.
