NAOUSSA - Ancient Mieza

The town of Naoussa sits at the foot of Mount Vermion. According to the ancient Greek mythology, Semeli, the mother of God Dionysos, lived on these slopes and that the magnificent dancer Silinos, the faithful companion of the God of vineyard and wine, was born in this area. Here lay the renowned Macedonian Tombs of Lefkadia and Aristotle's school at Isvoria is very close to the town of Naoussa, where Alexander the Great was a student of the great Greek Philosopher.
