Polychrono (Polichrono) Kassandra Halkidiki

Beginning in 650 B.C., the Eretrieis settled in Neapoli on the Kassandra Peninsula. The colony withstood all barbarian incursions until 540 A.D., when the Huns entirely destroyed it. This marks the beginning of Polichrono’s history.

In the eleventh century, farmers and cattle breeders gathered in this area to establish the “Polychrono” village, so named because of the profusion of flowers in the area.

The community was persecuted by the Turks, who also completely destroyed it by setting it on fire during the 1821 revolt.

Following their escape and survival, a small group of survivors returned a few years later to reconstruct the hamlet, which they called Polychrono due to word corruption.

It is currently one of Halkidiki’s most well-known sites, drawing thousands of visitors annually. It is renowned for having a long beach that stretches through the hamlet.
