Ouranopoli which means ‘city of heaven’, is on the west side of the Mount Athos peninsula. It is the gateway to Mount Athos for pilgrims who visit the monastic republic.

Ouranopoli is about 130 km from Thessaloniki and the beautiful village has about 800 inhabitants. A Byzantine tower, golden sandy beaches, clear blue water and plenty of typical Greek taverns and sights make Ouranopoli a place well worth a visit.
