One of the most famous places in Pelion, with highly developed intellectual activity in the past, is the school of Argalasti “Parthenagogeion”, situated in the popular village of South Pelion. The building of the school, donated by Theodore D. Giorgatzis, is in short distance from the village square and was built in the late 19th century. The school operated as a three-seater and its students were both from Argalasti and from the surrounding villages.
After the Second World War, the school met moments of desolation and was abandoned until a few years ago when it was restored, after years of efforts. It was characterized as a newest monument protected by law, on a proposal by the Ministry of Culture, and is currently used for various uses, as a space hosting events and exhibitions.
