A few words about MONUMENTA

MONUMENTA is a non-profit civil company for the protection of the natural and architectural heritage of Greece and Cyprus, created in 2006 by a team of archaeologists, architects and environmetalists wishing to contribute to the protection and the equitable management of the natural and architectural wealth of the two countries.
Its activities include the publication of the electronic magazine MONUMENTA (www.monumenta.org), programmes for informing the public and students, interventions for the rescue of monuments in danger, organisation of events, publications etc.
The programme “Local Communities & Monuments”, applied in various parts of Greece, aims so that the citizens themselves act for the protection of the natural and manmade environment of their region, and explores the relation between local communities around the world with their cultural and natural heritage.
