What I can see

The eclectic Nedelkos house has Renaissance, Romantic, Baroque, Art Nouveau and Ottoman Rococo elements. The main facade is symmetrical and its relief decorations include plant themes, angelic and human figures. The central room is in projection and is crowned with a curved baroque pediment. Today, the building is a museum for the history of Mount Athos.

What I can't see

It was the residence of doctor Ioannis Nedelkos and the homonymous clinic was right behind. The house was designed by Xenophon Paionidis and the role of the building was decisive for the future architectural identity of the area. The ground floor housed stores, while special craftsmen (jewelographers), whose art has now disappeared, worked on the decoration.
