Wether or not this place is good will depend on your attitude to jewellery. €5 is a lot for such a small museum, but well worth it if you like to see jewellery art. Some spectacular pieces and many based on past eras. The shop...More

We were lucky to catch the last 45 minutes of opening time at this stunning small museum. Beautiful jewellery and a fascinating history of Mr Lalaounis and his company. If you love jewellery and gorgeous design, it’s absolutely unmissable.

Always learning. A charming and very special corner of a rarified craft. Ilias lalaounis heritage is a Unique homage to an ancient art. Great place to escape to another world where beauty and antiquity are venerated.
