Museum of Carpentry, Katafygi

This private collection belonging to P. Safou can be found in the village of Katafygi and displays carvings inspired by mythology, religion, and the natural world, such as dolphins and turtles. The wood used is typically either Eucalyptus, Holm Oak, or Holly Oak found throughout the mountains of Ikaria. It stands out as a very unique museum on the island which is worth visiting.
