In the central paved square of the village with the century-old plane trees, Palaios Panteleimonas managed to maintain its local “colour” as it was almost deserted in the 1950s.

For thirty years the village of Palaios Panteleimonas had been abandoned by its inhabitants, who built Neos Panteleimonas, 6 km away from the sea. Since the 1980s, however, the village started to come back to life.

The locals returned and restored the old Macedonian mansions, the school, the cobbled streets and the cobbled square in the settlement of Palaios Panteleimonas.
