A brilliant example of Tsakonian architecture and one of the most mature and grand buildings of Kynouria, the Tsikaliotis Mansion at Leonidio incorporates all the evolution stages of the local traditional architecture and all the influences, from Byzantium to the Ottoman period, in a daring juxtaposition and refinement.
The mansion visitors have the opportunity to discover and explore one of the most beautiful and characteristic mansions of Peloponnese and at the same time find what makes the traditional architecture of Tsakonia worthy and special, through the exhibition housed now in the mansion, which, by using rich visual material, interactive applications and museopaedagogical games, showcases the buiding as well as the architectural frame where it belongs and of which it is a splendid sample.
TETRAGON along with OIKOM created the museological and museographical plans and did the construction. The texts of the exhibition were written by archaeologist Spyros Tsafaras, while the graphic design was done by Thanassis Georgiou.
