The Pyrgos Prosforeiou is a museum housed in a restored Byzantine tower, at Ouranoupoli.
The 14th-century structure exhibits locally discovered ancient and Byzantine artefacts. The odd story of an Australian couple, the Locks, who inhabited the tower in the 1920s, is also attested.
Large maps and detailed images inform on other local sites. The friendly staff can give further information on places on the border of monastic Athos accessible for women too, like the ruined 11th-century Monastery of Zygou, east of town.
