On August the 27th, 2006 Queen Sofia of Spain accompanied by Prince Michael of Greece and his wife Marina Karela, a well-known painter, visited the Folk Museum of Abdritsaina within the context of their private visit to the Temple of Apollo Epikourios.

Queen Sofia, touched, unsophisticated and friendly, greeted in perfect greek Andritsaina’s habitants who had gathered at Trani Vrysi to welcome her, headed to the museum together with her escort.

First, she visited the room with the photo archive, which belongs to the family of the donator, Mrs. Galini Kanelopoulou, and includes pictures taken during the visits of King Pavlos and Queen Frideriki and herself as a Princess then of Greece in Andritsaina, in 1951,1957 and 1958.

The high-class visitors then rambled in and admired every room of the Museum.

Further to this, the Mayor of Andritsaina and the Board of Directors of the Cultural Association of Women of Andritsaina offered sweets and cool drinks in the reception room of the museum.

« Homeland without tradition – Boat without compass»
