History[edit]

Mageiras was founded between 1750 and 1770 by residents of the large village Tsetsevos which suffered from landslides at the time. Landslides also hit Mageiras in the 1930s. Mageiras was part of the municipality of Erineos from 1840 until 1912, of Myrovrysi until 1919 and of Aragozaina (Alsos) until 1924. Mageiras was an independent community until it became a part of the newly formed municipality of Sympoliteia in 1997.
