Melidoni

The scene for the massacre of some 350 Greek men, women and children by the Turks, in the 1823, who blocked the entrance and lit a fire, suffocating those trapped inside. This is a tremendously moving spot and can be found a couple of kilometres north-west of the village of the same name.
