Agia (Saint) Paraskevi is situated in Kassandra’s hinterland, surrounded by a pinewood. It was called after the village’s church, Agia Paraskevi. The Agia (Saint), as the locals name it, has a rich historical past and has been destroyed three times by Turk invaders, the most recent being in 1821.
The visitor gets the opportunity to wander about the village’s tranquil streets and escape by magnificent trails etched in the woods. The villagers are quite modest and welcoming people who would gladly teach you their secrets of beekeeping, which, together with olive production, is their major activity.
There are several tiny, scenic bars in the area where you may sample wonderful traditional Halkidiki meals and snacks while enjoying some local ouzo or tsipouro (kind of ouzo, only stronger).
Do not forget to visit the Thermal Spa Center of Agia Paraskevi, unique for their healing properties.
