In the mainland of the Kassandra Peninsula, there is the village of Agia Paraskevi, surrounded by pine woods and natural beauty. Its name derives from the church at the edge of the village and locals call it “Agia”. The place has a rich tradition.
The locals, simple and hospitable people, will be more than happy to unveil the secrets of apiculture, which along with olive tree farming, is their main occupation. The village has small traditional taverns which serve local delicacies of Halkidiki, always accompanied by ouzo or tsipouro.
Visitors can explore the quiet narrow streets of the village and escape to beautiful walks in the green forest. The Folk museum revives memories of the past and recounts the long history of the area.
Agia Paraskevi is the ideal place for quiet holidays, enjoying the view of the blue sea and the green forest.
