Aristodimio Community - Overview

  The district consists of two villages: Aristodimio and Kalovrissi (Voumazi). Aristodimio was named after the mythical king of the Messenians, Aristodemus.
  According to the tradition, he was buried with his golden carriage in the particular area. The winter headquarters of the first municipality of Ithome was in Aristodimio. Visitors are able to admire the architecture, the house of Capetan Krobas, fighter of the Macedonian war, the parish church of Agios Constantinos (St Constantine), The Byzantine chapel of Agios Nicolaos (St. Nicholas) (10th century AD) as well as other sights.
