TOURNIKI Settlement ARGOS

Overview

  Tourniki, a village situated on Mountain Artemisio, is isolated and usually snowed during winter. It is more crowded on summer, when visitors are attracted by its beauty.
  The village’s main feast takes place on the fifteenth of August. However, things used to be different on that day years and years ago. People used to dance, sing and enjoy themselves until dawn.
  In this area, vegetation is not abundant. But still, trees such as oaks, fir trees and pine trees cover many square kilometres.
  On Mountain Aremisio near the village of Krioneri, there is the sacred forest of Artemis. A myth says that the forest contains ten poisonous and deadly trees, a real danger for animals such as horses. Its scientific name is Taxus Vakata.
