Palaiochori, as its name in greek implies – old village- has always been inhabited.
Known in ancient greek times as kytinion, it is full of antiquities. With finds from the Palaeolithic (c.50.000 years), Geometric, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras, the area is literally a canvas of history. Walls, castles, temples, monasteries and all these in a lush environment with a particularly rich flora and fauna ranging from boars and reindeer to wolves, reptiles and birds.
The area is famous for its Easter and other religious celebrations and the hospitality of the locals.
How to get here…
It is only 177 km from Athens, very close to the main national road and can be reached by car or train both from Athens or Salonica, as the train station is just five minutes from Tetrapolis.
It can be reached via modern roads from all over Greece as it is near the center of the world: Delphi!
