    The town is also known as Parthenopolis, Partheni or Parthenionas.
    The village auto protects itself, in terms of building and usage of areas.
    Parthenonas of Sithonia, model and example for imitation, celebrates a traditional, ancestral festival of Agiou Pantelimona, on July 27. Everyone is welcome to attend the festival, to witness the good reputation of hospitality of the Parthenioton and to see a village and an area with true working class feeling and tradition.
    A village that is not abandoned...
    being reconstructed with devotion. In Parthenona we also encounter the folk museum and "the boiler", where Greek wine known as tsipouro is produced
    The rare archeological and developmental makeup of Parthenona, which altogether retains the look of a past era, draws the attention of both the high profile tourist and those who want to remain anonymous. In present day Parthenona there are taverns, guesthouses, while the center near the church (the old civic center of Parthenona)

    Mount Athos is the only monastic state in Europe or indeed anywhere in the world.

    All-male monastic community, Athos is the centre of the global Orthodox religion - an area of mystique, contemplation, and isolation. The Mt Athos monasteries operate in much with the same manner as they have for over 1,000 years.

    Of the 20 monasteries, 17 are Greek and the other three are Russian, Bulgarian and Serbian - Hilandar.

    A maximum of 120 Orthodox and 10 foreign visitors per day are allowed onto this sacred land. A decree issued in the mid-11th century prohibits women from entering the world's sole monastic state.
