KASTELANA is a Photography Centre housed in a three storey listed building, part of the original gateway into Kasteli, Pyrgos medieval fortification.

The aim of the Centre is to host photography exhibitions from contemporary or archival sources as well as giving the opportunity to visiting artists to show their work to the public. Our vision is to create a welcoming space, with free entry, open to local residents and visitors through a diverse and interesting programme of exhibitions, events and activities.

The interior of the space remains unaltered over many centuries and together with the original furniture provides a setting for the appreciation of a typical house within the fortification, while the outside offers stunning views of the island. This is a panorama that is worth making the effort to climb the many steps from the new village below in order to experience it.

The administration and care of the collection of photographs by Antonis Lagadas is one of the primary aims of the Centre.

The exhibition space spans 150 m2 over three floors where we display individual or group work, host events and organise meetings. This year we are launching our first young photographer's competition and we have exciting plans for new collaborations.

In the ground floor Cafè, we serve a range of drinks, home-made savoury and sweet dishes, fresh salads, and a selection of quality wines, from Santorini, by the glass or by the bottle.
