ARISTOTELIS PARK AND ARNAIA VILLAGE
*Arnaia village. Liarigkova, named Arnaia in 1928, is mentioned for the first time in a document, in late 14th century, as a dependency of Konstamonitou monastery of Mount Athos. The village seems to have been created by farmers of the dependency around the well of the age-old plane tree that is located in the main square. The water flows through the tree’s body and -according to tradition- whoever drinks it will marry a woman born in Arnaia! In the district of Gannoudena, south of the main square, you will come across the famous Iatrou mansion operating as the Historical-Folklore mu-seum of Arnaia and the Weaving museum. This district has the most remarkable tra-ditional houses, painted in various colors. They were built after the 1821 disaster.
