History and culture of the region.
Halkidiki is a land located in the northern part of Greece and has been playing its own vital role in the history of the whole country. In 348 BC, Halkidiki became a part of the Macedonian kingdom, under Philip’s control. After the end of the wars between the Macedonians and the Romans, the region became part of the Roman Empire, along with the rest of Greece. At the end of the Roman Republic, a Roman colony was settled in Cassandreia, which was later resettled by Augustus. Therefore, in the area of Halkidiki, you will find a great variety of Byzantine monuments and churches.
