Psakoudia, Halkidiki – Under the shadow of the pine-trees..
Psakoudia is a seaside settlement and the natural seaport of the village of Ormylia, Halkidiki. The pine-tree forest around it, was used as a shelter by the network of resistance and allies during WWII. Wing Commander Edward Howell, in his book “Escape to Live”, charted the story of his remarkable escape from a war hospital in Thessaloniki, to Ormylia in Halkidiki and from there with the help of the locals to Mount Athos, before he safely leaves Greece. #capitalhalkidiki#visithalkidiki
