Archaeological Museum of Karpathos
The Archaeological Museum of Karpathos is located in one of the three buildings of Eparcheio, a complex that was constructed during the Italian occupation and served as the administrative seat of the island. The museum houses finds from the Prehistoric settlement of Pigadia, the three ancient cities of the islands, as well as artifacts from the early Christian basilicas and the Byzantine settlements. In the rooms of the museum, a replica of a Mycenaean tomb and that of a temple from an early Christian basilica are on display.
