Polygyros is a town and municipality in Central Macedonia, Greece. It is the capital of Chalkidiki.GeographyPolygyros town is built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a plateau on the south west side of the mountain Cholomontas. It is south of Greek National Road 16 . Polygyros is located SE of Thessaloniki, NE of Nea Moudania, NW of Sithonia and SW of Arnaia. The municipal unit has a population of 10,721 inhabitants and a land area of 470.933 km². Other large villages in the municipal unit are Kalýves Polygýrou, Ólynthos, Taxiárchis, and Vrástama .NameThere are different speculations about the origin of Polygyros' name. Some claim that it comes from the combination of poly (much) and geros (strong), because of the healthy climate. Others believe that the words poly and ieros (sacred) have given the present name, because of an ancient temple in the area. Also an old landowner, named Polyaros, offers a possible etymology. According to another possible etymology, the name derives from poly and gyros (round), possible due to the town's amphitheatric position.MunicipalityThe municipality Polygyros was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the following 4 former municipalities, that became municipal units: AnthemountasOrmyliaPolygyrosZervochoria
