Candia Village in Argolida

Print

Candia: Cadia is a coastline village which gives us signs of life since the Mycenaean Ages. You can walk on the remainings of the acropolis of the ancient city on the hill of Saint- Eleousa.argolida-map During the latter- day history the village was in – habited after the revolution against the Ottomanic posession in 1821, by people who came from the island of Crete and mixed themselves with people from Arkadia.

Worth to be seen apart from the acropolis is the tower- stone-house named Kadia Agas’ tower as it was the residence of the territory chief until 1821. The beach, spreading across the central high-way is beautiful and clean. Every summer Candia gathers a large number of visitors. Near the beach of spring Asklipios you will find sea- turtles. Northeast of Candia, near Lykotropi, you can find the remainigs of another prehistorical com- munity, the town of Eonon which is mentioned by Homer in Iliada.
