Amarinthos - Evia Island
Village Amarinthos, Island Evia, Greece  
  GENERAL INFORMATION
 

Amarinthos is located in the southern Evoikos gulf, a few kilometers away from the capital of the prefecture, Chalkida, between Eretria and Aliveri. It is a coastal town of a population of approximately 5000 people and in the recent years has to display significant development in tourist facilities. Some of the main reasons why are notably its crystal clear golden beach as well as its healthy cool climate.

The area has been inhabited since classic antiquity (3000 B.C.), with its prehistoric location being spotted on the hill of Paleohora. In the valley nearby used to stand the ancient temple of goddess Diana Amarinthia and its “apothetis” (a ditch used for the storing of objects used during worshiping rituals that had fallen into disuse for some reason) was discovered after the excavations that took place in the years between 1987 and 1990. The finding of the area can be seen today in the archaeological museum of Eretria, along with some objects of Cycladic style found on the beach of Amarinthos, that suggest there was a relationship with the islands of the Cyclades during antiquity. On the hill of Paleohora there are two Byzantine churches, the “Dormition of Virgin Mary” on top of the hill and “Metamorfosis of the Saviour” a little lower. Northern of Amarynthos, within a distance of 1500 meters, you can visit the Temple of Virgin Mary, built on the ruins of a previous temple that also provided some of the building material. In Amarinthos there is also a folklore museum displaying a rich collection of displays.

There are lots of lodging facilities, from hotels to room to let and studios, as well as some restaurants, night clubs and cafeterias for your entertainment. The restaurants are very well-known for serving fresh fish and seafood that the locals fish from the Evoikos gulf.
