The Aristotle Park is an unique theme park from Stagira, Chalkidiki. Visitors can see here some old experimental instruments: compass, telescope, pentaphone, lens, pendulum, parabolic reflectors, inertia spheres, and many other. Let's not forget one of the main attractions: the water turbine! #Stagira #Aristotle #Chalkidiki #Greece
Kapros / Kafkanas island as viewed from Olympiada beach. Olympias, mother of Alexander the Great, was exiled here in 316 BC by her rival Cassander after Alexander's death. Olympiada's name has its roots into this legend.
Stagira was founded in 655 BC and it is best known as Aristotle’s birthplace. I recommend you to visit Ancient Stagira during spring or autumn, to avoid high temperatures during the summer. Reserve for the visit at least 2 hours. Entrance is free.
