Must Visit

Discover the History of the School of Anargyrios Korgialenios

Location: Kaiki Telephone: 0030.210.3613.751 Website:



Founded from Sotirios Anargyros and Marinos Korgialenios, the greatest benefactors of the island, the School of Anargyrios Korgialenios is the most important establishments of Spetses, if not Greece. Known as the inspiration for the school in John Fowles’s The Magus, this institution was established in 1927 as an English-style boarding school for the male students of Greece’s Anglophilic upper class. Sotirios Anargyros was a Greek marine merchant who immi­grated to America and worked hard at a tobacco-plant at the end of the 19th century. When he made a great fortune out of it, he moved back to his homeland, Spetses, and made as his lifetime goal to develop the island. He decided to focus on two areas of development, tourism and education, which he thought would be ideal for that place and time. To support the first goal he built the famous POSEIDONION hotel and then bought half of the island, which had been deforested in order to support the many famous shipyards of the island, and planted it with pine-trees. Regarding education, supported by the great Greek prime-minister Eleftherios Venizelos, who envisioned the establishment of an educational institution that would educate the leaders for the nascent Greek society, a vision which Anargyros endorsed, he built in the 1920’s, together with another benefactor, Marinos Korgialenios, the Anargyrios and Korgialenios School of Spetses – AKSS to emulate the famous British schools Eton and Harrow. Anargyros died in 1928, some short weeks after the establishment of the Anargyrios & Korgialenios School of Spetses Foundation. Today, the AKSS serves as an ideal venue for conferences, seminars, symposiums, meetings & summer schools, of varying educational fields. Nevertheless, visitors can still take a free peek within the premises of the school and stroll around the fabulous gardens throughout the year.

Shipbuilding: The Tradition of the Spetsiots



Spetses has marked the history of Greece due to its important geographical significance at the crossroad of the marine routes throughout the Greek Sea. In the beginning of the 18th century, the residents of Spetses started building large merchant vessels; their rich knowledge in shipbuilding was brought from the shipwrights who fed the arsenal of Nafplio when the Turks dominated the city from the Venetians in 1715. The wealthy landowners of the Peloponnese peninsula financed these ships in order to carry their agricultural products to the ports of England, France and Spain. With the intention of protecting the ships from pirate invasions, the ships were armed with cannons. Archives from Malta record that the origin of first merchantman to arrive from the Aegean (1744) was Spetsiot. The Russian and Turkish Wars, which terminated with the treaty of Kutchuk-Kainardji (1774), allowed the Spetsiot ships to use the Russian Flag and carry grain from the Black Sea across the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, the local shipyards were optimizing the ships for capacity, shallow draft and speed. These features helped the Spetsiots become rich during the Napoleonic Wars, when they initiated the British naval blockade to land supplies on the continent. By then, Spetses had a fleet of 90 ships with 5.000 crewmen and over 1.000 cannon. When the Greeks rose in the Greek War of Independence in 1821, the Spetsiot fleet played a chief role in blockading the Turks and disrupting their naval forces. Nonetheless, the merchant fleet of Spetses started to decline following the Crimean War in 1843. In the 19th century, Spetses production was fifteen brigs per year and forty trehadiria traditional fishing boats. The trehadiria production continued at the very old same shipyards during the 20th century, until the invasion of the low-cost fiberglass boats turned them into boat-lover collectioners’ items.Walking along the seafront promenade of Palio Limani, you will reach the traditional Spetsiot shipyards, the sole shipyards in Greece that have been in operation constantly since the revolution of 1821. The shipbuilding tradition of Spetses is unequaled in the Mediterranean with the craft being carried down from generation to generation. Undeniably, the shipyards of Spetses are an integral part of the historical heritage of the island.
