DION - OLYMPUS
*Litochoro is a traditional village that stretches up the mountainside of Olympus’ high-est peak (Mytikas, 2,918 m.). Yet Litochoro is only a few kilometres away from the sea which makes it the perfect tourist destination any time of the year! This pictur-esque town was built following the traditional architecture of Macedonia and the varia-tions of lush vegetation surrounding it, enhance the area’s aesthetic harmony. The settlement dates back to the 14th century. According to descriptions by foreign and Greek travellers at that time, the majority of residents were mariners and there were also many textile workshops in town.
