The house of the Ladies is a three-storey house at Akrotiri that was built and inhabited in the Late Cycladic I period (17th c. BCE).

It was a wealthy house of three floors. The second floor interior was decorated with the wall paintings depicted in this photograph. Several female figures interact in a lovely landscape that depicts several papyrus plants.
