An interesting middle ages house of an obviously wealthy family. The stone wall and stone lower level provided protection and the upper living quarters gave very comfortable living for the times. Definitely worth seeing.

I was surprised. Had no idea of these fortified houses. A very interesting museum. To think the Christians had to fortify the house to protect themselves from roving Turkish bandits. The concept is interesting. It seems very well laid out for the period of time...More
