Agria (Αγριά) Magnisia

Agria is a small coastal village of the Agria municipality in Greece (Magnesia) on the Pelion peninsula about 7 km from Volos.

In the summer months it becomes a popular tourist destination. The large beach at Agria and at nearby Soutrali beach are good for swimming. The chapels of Timios Stavros, Panaghia Goritsa and Panaghia Tripia, built within the rocks, are remarkable for their beauty and simplicity. At the end of July exhibitions of popular art and local dances take place. Also in the middle of summer when there is a new moon there is a celebration "in honor of the fishermen (psaradiki vradia)," where fresh kakavia (traditional fish soup) is served.

From October 1943 until September 1944 Agria was the home and base for operations of a company of Waffen SS field engineers, the 16th Coy SS Pz. Gren. Rgt 8.
