    [02] The traditional village of Palaioi Poroi in the foothills of Mt. Olympos

    (ANA-MPA)In the foothills of the southeastern side of Mt. Olympos, the mythical home of the ancient Greek gods, lies the traditional village of Palaioi Poroi, at an altitude of 600 meters and surrounded by lush greenery and dense forest expanses of black pine, arbutus, walnut and cherry trees.

    The quaint village, in Pieria prefecture, is dotted with 17th and 18th century stone houses of traditional Macedonian architecture, while the Byzantine church of Agios Georgios (St. George) lies in the flagstone-paved central square, near a huge old plain tree that lends its shade.

    The magnificent forest above the village invites visitors to walk about the numerous footpaths and take in the exquisite natural beauty and explore the local flora and fauna, and discover the country churches of Agioi Apostoloi (Holy Apostles) and Zoodochos Pigi (Spring of Life) nestled among the trees.

    The village also boasts a breathtaking panoramic view of the Thermaikos Gulf and the shores of Halkidiki.

    Just 6 kilometers south of the village are the seaside villages of Neoi Poroi and Platamonas, and the magnificent aquatic landscape of Pappapouli, while Neoi Poroi also hosts the prefecture's unique natural fish farm.

    The area is also dotted with dozens of natural springs famed for their crystal-clear, ice-cold water.

    Palaioi Poroi is situated 45 kilometers from Katerini, the capital of Pieria prefecture.
