Litochoro

Litochoro is a small modern town with a population of 7000 inhabitants located at the foothills of Mount Olympus just five km from the sea. It combines the cool of the mountain air with the sea breeze and visitors can walk around the lanes between the traditional houses with the Macedonian architecture, the old wooden courtyard doors and the gabled roofs, work of Litochoro wood turners and stonemasons. The local folk traditions are kept alive through customs that are continued to the present day, such as Sichna for the feast of the Epiphany (January 6) and the burning of the cedar tree for the carnival. Litochoro is an ideal base for investigating the wider area due to its easy access and excellent tourist infrastructure.
