One of the first villages of Halkidiki we encounter on the way from Thessaloniki to Poligiros is Galatista. It is situated on the slopes of mount Holomontas, blessed with amphitheatric views, watching us as we drive past. However, it is worth making the effort to be side-tracked and visit to discover a really leisurely pace, the smiley and hospitable residents, the Byzantine tower once a citadel and a watchtower, the small but very beautiful square with the town hall, the churches and the picturesque alleys.
