The University of Thessaly Conference and Cultural Center is located about 43 km from the city of Volos, in the premises of the old St. Nicholas Monastery of Paou founded in the early 18th century and ceded in 1985 from the municipality of Argalasti to the University. Since then, respecting the history of the site, necessary restoration and reconstruction works were made to the premises in order to function as a Conference & Cultural Center. The complex, which consists of a courtyard, 9 rooms (+ dining room and waiting room area), a meeting room with capacity of 18 persons, a lecture hall with capacity of 25 persons and a small exhibition Center, is surrounded by an area of 600 hectares while in the interior there is a church of the 17th century decorated with exquisite frescoes. The complex which is managed by the Property Management and Development Company of the University (PMDCompany/Uth), is fully equipped and operates all year round. It can host summer schools, workshops, seminars and small working groups, as well as cultural events (concerts, exhibitions …). The natural beauty of the area as well as the location of the venue-close to Argalasti and at the focal point of the road and hiking communication network of south Mount Pelion villages- render this Center an ideal place for conducting scientific and cultural events.
We invite you to visit.
