Vourvourou

Vourvourou is village near Agios Nikolaos, in the Chalkidiki peninsula of northern Greece. It is best known as a holiday destination.HistoryIn the 10th century, the area was known as the "land of the Vourvourioi", and was granted to the Xenophontos monastery of Mount Athos. In the 1615, the people of Agios Nikolaos acquired the land, but at the end of the 19th century the monks of Simonopetra monastery sold it to Russian monks, with the result that the latter were forcibly driven away by the local inhabitants.During the 1960s the teaching staff of the University of Thessaloniki developed a holiday resort in Vourvourou, well known for its environment-friendly design and respect for the natural surroundings. In 1974 excavation at the chapel of Panagia in Vourvourou, uncovered ruins of what is probably the remains of the monastery of Ieromnimon.
