Overview

  Artemissio is the main village in the Municipality of Artemissio. The old name of the village was "Kourbatsi" (Turkish word which means thrashing). In 1926 the village established a community independent of the Municipality of Istiaia and was renamed Artemissio in honour of the goddess Artemis whose temple was situated in the area of St. George, where the cemetery of Pefki is located today.
  A tour of the village, where there are still houses dated from the Turkish domination, is worthwhile. If you are fond of nature, you will enjoy walking a little further from the village where there is a magnificent ravine full of plane -, pine- and walnut-trees which will lead you to an area called "Agrilitsa". The view is breathtaking, the eye can see as far as Mt Pelion and the Sporades.
Τhis text is cited May 2003 from the Municipality of Artemissio tourist pamphlet.
