DISCOVER PROTI

A visit to the Museum can be combined with a tour of the village. Proti built at the foot of Mount Paggaio is one of the oldest villages in the prefecture of Serres, which retains elements of its old architecture. For the protection of this residential wealth, a Traditional Settlement has been designated with a presidential decree that defines the general and special building rules.
   Proti's fame is inextricably linked with Konstantinos Karamanlis, four times Prime Minister of the country and twice President of the Hellenic Republic. His statue is located in the central square of the village, while the cobbled alley on the side of the square leads to his paternal home, which functions as a museum.

Important examples of the industrial architecture of the early 20th century are the tobacco shops of Proti, which were built during the heyday of Greek aromatic tobacco. They operated as tobacco processing factories of the pre-industrial period. Their decline began after the US financial crash in 1930.
