Agia (St) Paraskevi, Kassandra Halkidiki

Nestled in the pinewoods of Kassandra’s hinterland sits Agia (Saint) Paraskevi.

It was named for Agia Paraskevi, the community church. The rich historical background of the Agia (Saint), as the locals call it, includes three Turkish invasions, the most recent of which occurred in 1821.

The option to meander around the village’s peaceful streets and retreat by stunning paths carved out of the forest is provided to the visitor. The primary business of the locals is beekeeping, along with olive production, and they are hospitable and humble individuals who would be happy to share their knowledge with you.

There are a number of small, charming pubs in the neighbourhood where you may have some local ouzo (similar to ouzo, but stronger) and delicious traditional Halkidiki meals and snacks.

Remember to check out the Agia Paraskevi Thermal Spa Centre, which is renowned for its therapeutic qualities.
