More on Naoussa.
History of Naoussa.
At the end of the 14th century, the Christians of Vermio founded Naoussa and with the privileges that Evrenos, the Turkish conqueror of Macedonia granted them, the city became an important economic and trade center. Naoussa’s wealth attracted Ali pasha, who attacked the city and conquered it after a nine year war, in 1804. In February 1822, the people of Naoussa rose against the Turkish dominance but in April the revolution was stifled. The city was destroyed completely and its people were massacred.
The city was ultimately freed on October 1912 by the Greek Army during the Balkan Wars. New industries were built, who fell into decay during the II World War.
In the location Nimfaio, archaeologists found the remains of the ancient city Isvoria, where Aristotle founded his famous school and taught young Alexander philosophy and politics.
Nowadays, Naoussa is famous for its fruit and carnival, but most important for its wines, as it has been declared “international city of Grapevine and Wine”. Especially Naoussa’s red wine was one of the first in Greece to be bottled and has won many international prizes.
People can visit the Boutaris winery in Stenimachos, which was founded in Naoussa in 1879, the Historical and Folkloric Museum, and also the Skiing Center of Vermio in Tria-Pende Pigadia.
