Kukuvaya is not the average souvenir shop. You will find contemporary Greek memorabilia and souvenirs, made by modern Greek producers and artists! Kukuvaya means Owl in Greek - the Owl of Athena a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition.

The shopping in Katakolon is mostly the same in all the stores, at least until I came here. Original and cool items made by Greek designers. A Breathe of fresh air in between all the standard souvenirs. Absolutely worth a visit!
