MEGARO GYZI
The Cultural Centre is housed in the Gyzi Manor, one of the few remain old estates that survived the earthquakes of 1956. It is a typical example of Cycladic architecture with its pebbled yard and snow-white walls. It was donated by the Catholic Diocese of Thira for the activities of the Cultural Centre that was established through the Diocese's initiative. Apart from permanent exhibitions, the Manor's halls host each year cultural events such as periodic painting exhibitions, concerts, recitals, stage plays and traditional dances. The Cultural Centre holds that this activity constitutes a positive contribution to the cultural life of Santorini, a contribution addressed to both the permanent residents of the island and to its numerous friends and visitors.
