⇠ Thessaloniki 97km ⇠ Polygyros 36km

The village lies on the northern coast of the Bay of Singos, the waters separating Sithonia from Mt. Athos. Also known as Agios Dimitrios, the village is built on an outcrop of rock. Its name is believed to be derived from a Phrygian word gordos, meaning town or city. It was founded by refugees from Afthoni in Asia Minor, in 1922. In the church of Panagia Kastrella you can still see the icon of the Virgin brought by the settlers that arrived from Asia Minor. According to an old story the Turks threw the icon into the sea, but it was later recovered by the local people inside a castle – hence the name Kastrella.
Explore the area some more and take the road from Agii Theodori to the Chapel of the Transfiguration. Here you can enjoy a panoramic view; the location was used as a lookout point by the Ottomans.

The town is full of night clubs, bars and tavernas, as well as banks and shops selling folk art, jewelry and clothes. There are plenty of hotels and rooms to rent.
Sightseeing
• The ruins of Ammon Zeus’s sanctuary, on the coast of Kallithea. Ammon Zeus, the greatest of the Olympian gods, was served by this temple which dates from the second half of the 4th century BC. The temple, 10×21 m., was of a Doric order and had 6 columns on the short sides and 11 on the long sides.
• The temple of Dionysos and Nymfes southeast of the temple of Ammon Zeus. A stone stairway has been excavated, carved into the rock, leading to a hollow in the rock. Under the stairway there is a cave with stalactites.
• The small Byzantine church of the 10th century above the cave of the Nymphs. The walls are preserved up to a height of about 1m.

⇠ Thessaloniki 91km ⇠ Polygyros 66km

Olympiada lies on the north-eastern coast of Halkidiki, on the road to the Athos peninsula. It was built by refugees from Asia Minor on the site of the ancient Stagira. At that time the location was known as Limbiada, because according to tradition it was here that Kassandros exiled the mother of Alexander the Great, Olympiada. The modern village, set in a natural harbour and stretching along a fine beach, is surrounded by green mountains and magical coastline, attracting large numbers of tourists the summer.
Sightseeing
• Ancient Stagira: Ancient Stagira located about 500 meters southeast of the current settlement of Olympiada, on a small, mountainous and beautiful peninsula called “Liotopi”. The city occupied the two hills of this peninsula, i.e. the coastal North and a greater South, which are separated by a low strip of land. The location of the city is known as the birthplace of Aristotle. The excavations in the region began in 1990. The most impressive piece that was brought to light is the wall, at the top of the hill that was built in the classic years.
• The privately-owned island of Kapros (or Kafkanas), opposite Olympiada at a distance of about 2 miles. Behind its port there are traces of a small settlement. One can see two water cisterns and the ruins of a structure which must have been a two-storey building, which -according to legend- was a church.
• An exhibition center with photographs, archaeological findings, and folklore items.
• Between Olympiada and the picturesque mountainous village Varvara, the 15m high Varvara’s waterfalls.
