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.
