    History

    There are no documents or written evidence to certify exactly when Agnanta first appeared as an organized community. The first preserved written evidence is a TAPU (Turkish title deed) from 1729, which refers to properties and forest regions of Agnanta. It is likely that an organized village existed there much earlier and probably since the early decades of the 17th century, when populations moved from other areas towards Tzoumerka due to indictments and diseases in other areas.
