Architecture of Parthenon  
     
 

  The village of Parthenonas has been characterised from the Greek Tourism Organisation as a “Traditional Greek Settlement”, which means that the construction of anything new is allowed only under  the unique and traditional style of this area. The local stone, as well as the wood of the near by forests of Mt. Dragoudelis are the predominant building materials, so that Parthenonas can keep the face of the village that it was at the late 60's, beginning of 70's.


  The unique architecture of the village of Parthenonas is an extra reason why a visitor of Halkidiki should stop by and enjoy a refreshing walk in its beautiful little alleys and then just relax under one of the big, shady trees in the small square, where the old primary school used to be (and where the Folklore Museum is today). What follows a little walk like this is a nice ice-coffee or even a glass of “ouzo” or “tsipouro” accompanied of course with olives, feta, and fresh garden tomatoes, in one of the little shops of the village, which offer amazing view to the Toroneos Gulf.
