Historical and Ethnological Museum of Mani

This museum is housed in a 19th-century fortified tower and an adjoining house on the island of Kranae, just off Gíthion. Its exhibits delve into the history of Mani, this wild, rugged area on the southern part of Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula. Weapons from the War of Greek Independence are of particular interest, such as the short Ottoman saber called a yatagan. Nostalgics should seek out the collection of old maps and manuscripts gathered by Western travelers during their grand tours of Europe centuries ago.
