Traditional House
The traditional house it’s a new bulding made according to our great-grand mother’s house! The timber is all hand made by old hand-machines. In this house visitor can see and touch things that they are aged over 100 years! All the house was one place, without rooms. At the left side on a high bed were sleeping the parents and at the right side, a big bed was for the children. Under the beds there was small storage rooms where they used to keep olive oil, wine and different other things. Near parent’s bed was the fireplace. There people used to cook on wooden fire and eating there on a very short table near the fireplace. They didn’t have water system in the house so they took water from the well and keep it in earthen receptacles. They used to decorate their places with multicoloured hand-made dishes and some glass utensils, hand made too! Finally, visitors can also see the traditional dress of Empona! Hand made clothes worn by the women of the village before many many years!
