Epic journeys

Art, history and architecture converge on Hydra making this island unique.

Our desire is to take you on a relaxed stroll around the town linking the monuments and buildings to the history of the island for you.

We will talk about piracy, trade and the role of Hydra in the Greek War of Independence.

We will also talk about the Greek presidents, prime ministers and naval generals who were born here.

And we won’t forget the artists that fell in love with Hydra and made it their home.

Lazaros Kountouriotis Museum

Built in the era of naval prosperity of the island (late 18th century), it stands on the west side of the harbour of Hydra. Lazaros Koundouriotis (1769-1852) was one of the most eminent political figures of Hydra, who offered his ships, crew and fortune to the Greek War of Independence. Significant meetings and consultations took place in this mansion, which offered hospitality to many important figures of the time, Greeks and foreigners.
Last Stop

Tetsis Museum

The house is a typical hydriot home of the 19th- early 20th c. and was also used for the family’s professional activities: one aisle of the ground floor was devoted to a traditional candle manufactory and grocery shop-tavern. The donor’s wish was to have the house preserved as a unit, encompassing both the family home, and these workshop settings, including the wine cellar in the basement, all of which are preserved intact.
