Evangelistria Cemetery - Ευαγγελίστρια

The Greek Municipal Cemetery "Evangelistria" was founded in 1875. Till then the Greek community used to bury its dead anywhere outside the perimeter of the Eastern walls.
The cemetery is situated in the southwest part of the homonymous Quarter, just outside the City's Eastern Walls and covers an entire square block: the west limit is Elenis Zografou str., the east limit is Panepistimiou str., the south limit is Ayiou Dimitriou Avenue and the the north limit is Ayios Dimitrios Municipal Hospital.

Evangelistria Quarter (and the adjacent Saranda Eklisyes Quarter) was one of the first refugee settlements created in Thessaloniki, in the aftermath of the 1922 Asia Minor War, to house families mainly originating from Eastern and Northern Thrace.
