The house of Papadiamantis
Alexandros Papadiamantis (Skiathos, March 4, 1851 – January 3, 1911) is one of the most important Greek writers. He mainly wrote short stories, which hold a prominent place in modern Greek literature. His house is located in a small square, just a few meters from the port. It was built in 1860 by his father, priest of the island, Adamantio Papadiamantis. This important writer grew up and died in this House. It is just a simple, unassuming and plain Island House that today has been transformed into a museum and is located on Papadiamantis Street, in the town of Skiathos.
