Patrick and Joan Leigh Fermor loved and admired Greece and decided to build their home in Kardamyli, Mani for the rest of their lives. In 1996, they donated their house to the Benaki Museum, in order to contribute to the Museum’s mission and with the expressed desire that the house will remain open to the public and host researchers. To honor the donors, the Benaki Museum is planning the operation of the Patrick & Joan Leigh Fermor Centre. The Centre’s operation will include residencies and educational activities in collaboration with partner Universities as well as scheduled visits and specially organized events open for the public.
