The village is a small tourist resort with a picturesque harbor, many typical tavernas along the seaside and some cafes where one can seize the great view towards the sea.

This area was a part of the Holy Mountain (Mount Athos), but was given as gift to Greek refugees who migrated from Turkey to Halkidiki at 1922.

But it also home to some very important historical monuments, and a couple of things you don't see much in Halkidiki: for one, it has the tall, rectangular, cut stone, Byzantine-era St. Paul's water which is a chapel in a rock, where visitors can walk around in the area where St Paul lived overlooking the sea and the harbor, and secondly, it has Saint's Paul Church. Also the outstanding Byzantine Tower, built in 1407.

The traditional festival on June 29th which is a celebration for the nameday of Apostle Peter and Apostle Paul.
