Kallipolis and other sites in Lidoriki

Kallipolis and other sites in Lidoriki

There’s an archaeological museum tucked away in Lidoriki as well as notable archaeological sites in the area. At an altitude of 400 meters the area near the village of Kallio used to be known as Kallipolis, which was overrun by the Gaules in 278 BC.  The city is now submerged under Lake Mornos which was created artificially, although many byzantine and ancient artefacts/ruins were retrieved, with many ending up in the Archaeological Museum of Lidoriki. At Lefkaditi some 700 meters above sea level, there are archaeological sites including a fortress and a settlement. The same applies for Koniakos at an altitude of 1,000 meters with remains of an ancient and medieval fortress.
