Nikiti

Nikiti is located 32 away from Sarti, on the northwestern coast of Sithonia. This area is famous for its natural beauty and enchanting beach, such as Aghios Ioannis, Lagadas, Kastri and Kalogria. There are many tourist facilities meeting all tastes, but the area maintains its traditional character.

 

What you should not miss visiting is the old village that is characterized as settlement of historical interest. Small stone houses built by 1830 and then, are hidden in the green landscape. If you are interested in historic monuments, you should visit old Christian Vasiliki Sofroniou church, one of the oldest ones of Macedonia (mid-5th century) and the Dormition of Theotokos’ (Virgin Mary) church depicting a few murals dating from 17th century. Walking up the central trail of the historic settlement, you will see the big church of Saint Nikitas, built in 1867, from whose yard you have a view to the settlement.
