ACHLADOKAMBOS Village ARGOLIS

Overview

  Achladokampos is an amphitheatrical village with stony houses, 35km away from Argos. This is where Argolida and Arcadia County are linked.
  Achladokampos was once the larges among the villages. Now, it still retains its ‘supremacy’, as there are many well-maintained houses a large church, a school, a nice square and a building with hot bath.
  At the foot of Partheni Mountain Range were once many wild pear-trees. It is said that Achladokampos was named after them (Achladi=pear). At least, this is one version. The other says that the village was named after the olive trees. Specifically, when a Turkish aga came in view of the plain full of olive trees, he exclaimed ‘Ach! Ladokampe!’ (Ach= exclamation, Ladokampos= plain with olive trees).
  On the whole, Achladokampos is a village based on cattle raising. The locals still maintain old customs and they are ready to enjoy themselves by organising feasts on Trinity Sunday and Pentecost.
