Ancient Stagira

Ancient Stagira – Motherland of Aristotle

The ancient Stagira is located about 500m Southeast of today’s settlement of Olympiada, on a small, mountainous and beautiful peninsula, which is called Liotopi.

The town took both hills, one coastal at the North and one bigger at the South, which are divided by a low neck.

The position of the town, which is well know as the home town of Aristotle, is identified with the reports of the ancient writers, and with the researches of the current classicists.
