Archipolis

Archipolis (or Archipoli or Arhipoli) is a small, busy, traditional village. Its first inhabitants lived on the mountain known as Axintes. According to tradition Archipolis owns its name to a prince called Archepolis, who came from Crete and chose this region to recover from a serious illness.

The settlement’s thoroughfare is the centre of attraction with its small shops, taverns, cafés and bars. As mountains planted with centuries old pine trees surround the village, clear mountain fresh air with the aroma from the pine trees is the main trait of the region. Three km off the village, there stands a magnificent church dedicated to Saint Nektarius, a very popular venue for weddings and christening services as it is large and very picturesque. You can find many icons and frescos inside-well worth stopping here.
