Agios Mamas shows up while heading down towards Sithonia peninsula and approx. 2 km along the road you reach its famous prehistoric settlement.
Agios Mamas is a small scenic village between Kassandra and Sithonia which has a stunning beach and provides all the necessary facilities to its visitors. The old chapel of Agios Mamas was the place where the festival used to take place; thus, has been already replaced by a new church and a modern cultural centre.
Worth it to see:
- The “Touba”, one of the most important prehistoric sites in Halkidiki. At the west side, the cemetery of the Early Cooper Era is the oldest cemetery ever found in Macedonia.
- The small wetland of Agios Mamas, an important location for breeding and passage waders. The wetland with the standing water has sand-dunes and reedbeds.
