Places of interest in Polychrono and surroundings
Agios Athanassios is considered to be the protector of Polychrono and in his honor they gave his name to the church of Polychrono (1912). We recommend to visit church of the Nativity of Christ (1863), museum of ethnography and the outdoor olive mill with its traditional press.
There is also unique ancient cemetery of antique times (5th centure BC) and excavations of ancient city (7th centure BC).
If you are ready for a long distance walk (30-40 mins) or you have a car you can visit the lake Mavrobara which is the only lake in Kassandra peninsula and which is appr. 3 km from Polychrono towards the mountains. There are 2 rare types of turtles which are found there. Don’t forget to take bread with you: the turtles can understand the movements of people and when people start to feed them. The lake is protected as a unique ecosystem.
