There is an interesting and -at the same time- unique fact that concerns Paleokastro:  in fact, Paleokastro consists of 2 villages that are about 1 klm apart. The old settlement and the new one. And the ancient settlement of Paleokastro was declared as traditional village in 1978.

The village's sightseeings are the Paleokastro -Agia Paraskevi’s touring route as well as the remarkable traditional settlement of the village. The residents of Palaiokastro maintain the customs of their land. They have many local festivals which celebrate all year round.

Worth it to see:

  • The location of “Vatonia” with the plane trees and the stream of the same name that create an astonishing natural landscape.
  • The location of “Palekastro” north of the village, with ruins of an old castle that gave its name to the village.

Don’t miss it!

On January, the 6th, when the Greek Orthodox Church celebrates "Epiphany" or "Theophania" -meaning the manifestation of God- there is a famous feast that takes place every year at the village. It's a local costume that dates back thousand years.
