Today Archanes is the seat town of the Municipality of Archanes and is characterized by great agricultural, cultural and touristic development.

In the agricultural sector, the cultivation of vineyards for the production of grapes and excellent wine is a priority. The Union of Agricultural Associations of Archanes is particularly active in this sector.

As far as cultural development is concerned, it is worth mentioning that the Municipality as well as the citizens of Archanes have undertaken important tasks related to the reformation and aesthetic restoration of the town, such as the underground installation of electricity, telephone and TV network, the paving of streets and the renovation and restoration of traditional and neoclassical municipal buildings, churches and houses, many of which are characteristic tokens of rurban architecture. Archanes is a town that respects its past, its citizens and its visitors; a stroll through its beautiful, picturesque narrow streets will certainly prove this to you.
