Agia Paraskevi, Kassandra Halkidiki
Agia (Saint) Paraskevi is located in the inland of Kassandra, surrounded by a pinewood. It was named after the church of Agia Paraskevi, which is in the village. The Agia (Saint), as the habitants call it, has a rich historical tradition and it was ruined three times by the Turks conquerors, the last one was in 1821.
The visitor has the chance to wonder around the peaceful alleys of the village and escape through beautiful routes that are traced in the woods. The habitants of the village are very simple and hospitable people and will be glad to show you their secrets of beekeeping, which along with the olive cultivation is their main occupation.
In the village there are a lot of small, picturesque taverns where you can taste delicious traditional food and snacks of Halkidiki, always by drinking 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.
