Poligiros is the capital of Chalkidiki Prefecture. It is located in the center of this area and built on the south foothills of Mt. Holomonta at 550 meters above sea level. Slopes overgrown with oaks lie on the north side of Poligiros; the highest top of them is Tsoukalas 890 in height. An impressive conic hill, the famous Ai-Lias and the homonymous country church overlook Poligiros. Small hills, coulees and streams are located on the south side of Poligiros. They lead to fruitful slopes with the olive groves of Poligiros and to the coastlines where Kalives and Gerakini villages are built.
