  • Extremely interesting library worth visiting! The Public Central historical library "Korais" is one of the oldest and largest in Greece. The story begins in 1792, so worked as an annex of the great School of Chios first we core were the books of Adamantios Korais and Greek scholars. During the massacre of Chios in 1822, the library was destroyed, but the Korais sent books again. After the devastating earthquake of 1881, the library was housed in the current building. The 1948 began, at the initiative of f. Argenti. Over the years the library has gathered invaluable collections of books, manuscripts, periodicals, newspapers, paintings, coins, relics and maps donated big spiritual people. Priceless treasure of the library is the donation of Napoleon in honor of Adamantiou Korai, comprising 14 volumes eikonografimenoys!
