Ioannis Konstantakis’ House at Embonas

The house of Ioannis Konstantakis, situated in the scenic village of Emponas, is a small village house, with a very simple, but also plastic design of the volumes. Around the external walls, just below the roof of the attic it has been constructed a cornice made of schist slabs, a feature necessary to protect the buildings from rain water, but also a nice decoration element.

The house was constructed in 1840 and later on, in the 20th century it was in this house that was born and grown up the well known Rhodian professor and poet Ioannis Konstantakis, who donated the house to the Community of Emponas.

Today, the house has been transformed to a small but very interesting Folk and Popular Art Museum, which, apart from the scenic environment of the village, is another pole of attraction for several visitors who desire to have an idea of the everyday life of the villagers in past times.
