Chalkidiki ist ein Land im Norden Griechenlands und hat in der Geschichte des ganzen Landes eine wichtige Rolle gespielt. 348 v. Chr. wurde Chalkidiki unter Philipps Kontrolle Teil des mazedonischen Königreichs. Nach dem Ende der Kriege zwischen den Mazedoniern und den Römern wurde die Region zusammen mit dem Rest Griechenlands Teil des Römischen Reiches. Am Ende der Römischen Republik wurde in Kassandreia eine römische Kolonie besiedelt, die später von Augustus umgesiedelt wurde. Daher finden Sie in der Gegend von Chalkidiki eine große Auswahl an byzantinischen Denkmälern und Kirchen.
