Halkidiki est une terre située dans la partie nord de la Grèce et a joué son propre rôle vital dans l’histoire de tout le pays. En 348 avant JC, Halkidiki est devenu une partie du royaume macédonien, sous le contrôle de Philip. Après la fin des guerres entre les Macédoniens et les Romains, la région est devenue partie de l’Empire romain, avec le reste de la Grèce. À la fin de la République romaine, une colonie romaine s’est installée à Cassandreia, qui a ensuite été réinstallée par Auguste. Par conséquent, dans la région de Halkidiki, vous trouverez une grande variété de monuments et d’églises byzantines.
