La Ponta is located in a 13th century Venetian Tower within the castle (Kasteli) of Akrotiri, 1km above the pre-historic archaeological site of Akrotiri, Santorini.
The tower hosts a tsabouna - Greek folk wind instrument of the bagpipe family - exhibition and workshop along with traditional Greek percussion and flutes.
In our workshop we construct the tsabouna, various traditional and ancient Greek flutes and the Cycladic drum doubaki. Musical instruments are available for purchase at La Ponta.
Daily guided tours explore the history of the tower, the origin of the tsabouna and offer a live presentation of the instruments.
As part of our effort to promote the cultural identity of Greece La Ponta presents the evening concert series "Sounds from the Castle". Summer 2015 from April till October.
