According to the legend, the village of Olympiada bears its name after the mother of Alexander the Great, exiled by King Cassander. The modern settlement of Olympiada was built on the site of the ancient Stagira City where Aristotle had been born. The modern village at the feet of the mountains is an idyllic place full of greenery, with a long sandy beach.
