Athikia

Athikia: Athikia, Alamanos and Moni Taxiarhon are a community. It’s an agricultural center at an altitude of 250m on the north hills of mountain chain Onion, almost 16klm away from Korinthos. Standing on the lower hills of mountain Skaroumbalo, is surrounded by fertile lowland and the mountain which has rich verdulous forests. During the Ottomanoc domination the location was a wide forest of age-long trees and provided the Ottomans with wood. You will find many trees planted during the 19th century in the picturesque village in which many hou-ses have been declared by the Ministry of culture as listed buildings and have their own architectural order (Kollia, Mylos, Tsipouradiko). Smaller churches are scattered around the village and the church of Evangellistria, famous of the bellhouse builted in 1923 by an immigrant mechanic fromAsia Minor. 1,5klm away from the village you will find the archeological space of Matraga. On the foothills of mountain Voukina, in a flume, we will find the re-mainings of the church Anastaseos Christou. At this location in the 14th century the church of Osia Matrona was standing and was based on a Early-christianic church dedicated to the Mother of Christ. It’s believed that due to the plenitude of laurel trees next to the spring that during ancient years there was a templle dedicated to Apollo (god of light). The territory has many wells. A cemetary of the Byzantine Ages and an underground aqueduct belonging to the Roman Ages along with a church yard were found. Olive- trees, vineyards, apricot trees, platans, flumes and flowing waters are just a few beauties you will find in Athikia. Walk or pass by car. Drink sweet red wine and have something to eat at the tavernas, the food is delicious. The Korinthos rally root passes through Athikia.
