Agios Prodromos, it’s a small mountainous village on the road towards Arnea, Ouranoupolis, and Mt. Athos, close enough to Thessaloniki.
It’s super popular about the local meat, especially for its "souvlaki" that is exclusively produced in the village. There are plenty of traditional tavernas where visitors can taste the best-grilled meat and all kind of delicious Greek food.
Worth it to see:
- The river which crosses the village and is surrounded by wild vegetation.
- The chapel of St. Prodromos which is one of the late Byzantine churches in Halkidiki.
✓ Don’t miss it
On the eve of St. Prodromos day there is a Service of Vespers; on Agios (saint) Prodromos name-day (29/8) there is a Holy Liturgy followed by kourbani with lenten food.
