Description :
At the Historical Archives of Agia one can find many documents dating from the 18th century until today, as well as old manuscripts from 1621, with valuable information on Agia and its county. It was established in 1977, following the initiative and systematic efforts of the historian Dimitris K. Agraphiotis (1948-1999), as well as the sound sensitization and mobilization of the locals for the salvaging of the testimonials of the region’s history.

Through the addition of the personal and family archives of Miltiadis I. Dallas, the Archives became even richer and constituted the means for the preservation and the promotion of the cultural and historical heritage of the region.

Despite the fact that it does not constitute a Municipality seat, Agia is fortunate enough to be one of the few cities of Greece with its own Archival Service, the Local Archive of Agia.
