Colorful photo collage of Xylokastro Greece attractions


A tourist destination attracting thousands of visitors who come to enjoy the seaside pine forests, traditional villages, and beaches, Xylokastro is a popular destination for international travelers. Before we explored the area we had a meeting with the mayor who promised us that the Xylokastro was the most beautiful and varied area of our trip. With the exceptional Church of Agios Vlasios, Ziria- a ski area high in the mountains, quaint villages dotting the road and at sea level beautiful pine forests and beaches, he could be right.
