Unique variety of fine art photography and jewelry, all astonishingly handmade by local artists. The gallery has a very harmonic atmosphere in an elegant cave house located only a few steps before the Castle and the famous sunset spot in Oia.

This is a lovely little gallery in Oia with gorgeous, unique jewelry. Not the average 'souvenir shop pieces' and more expensive however the designs are beautiful and definitely worth considering either for a personal souvenir from the island or to buy as a present for someone special who you would want to 'spend a little more' on! Would definitely recommend... More

The space is amazing and the collection of art and jewellery is stunning and so fabulously displayed. The owner is also super friendly and my purchases were packaged wonderfully. Definitely one of the highlights of this lovely town.

Unusual hand crafted pieces unlike the mass produced material that you see in the more prominent shops. Delightful personal and friendly service from the two ladies who run the shop and make some (all?) of the pieces. This shop was recommended to us by our daughter - we had to buy earrings for her too!

I was very impressed with their jewelry. Beautiful pieces and Photographs. The two artists took their time to explain and show us their pieces, which were unique. We talk and made wonderful friends. We bought a couple of pieces and left them behind.. They right away emailed us and were able to pick them up before leaving Santorini. Great Gals!!... More

Mnemosyne is a shop! With a galley touch! If you are looking for different pictures of the island you will find there! The owner is a professional photographer that gives a special touch into the island pictures! The shop worth a visit just by the architecture! A traditional cave house! The jewelry pieces are AMAZING! Super friendly staff! Before going... More

Great photographic art and jewelry, along with friendly service. This is a beautiful shop that my wife and I visited as we took one of our final strolls through Oia. The jewelry is handmade by the proprietress, who is very friendly and helpful.

After visiting almost all of the jewelry stores on the island I was so pleased to have found this wonderful gallery store a bit hidden from the main street.. The Mnemossyne Gallery has a window on the main street with a preview of what to find in the store a few steps below. The jewelery is both original and artistic.... More

As others have mentioned this little gallery is down some steps off the beaten track but the display cases along the path, on the left as you walk towards the castle, have some lovely items that demanded further investigation. Once in the gallery I found a beautiful silver bracelet, completely unique with one black lava bead within it, a perfect... More
