Panagia village Thassos: The village of Panagia is situated 7 km south west of Limenas, the capital of Thassos. It is a traditional village with a rich history and one of the wealthiest villages of Thassos. It was the first capital of the island after the revolution of 1821.
It lies in a beautiful location, among verdant trees, and it is full of running water. The church of the village is very old but it remains a remnant of those times. The church has given its name to the village and all travelers should visit. Most of the houses of Panagia are traditionally built, with covered balconies, schist roofs and their interior adorned with wood.
The village is famous for its sirup sweets, its walnuts, its figs and its tomatoes. Many taverns and cafes are scattered in the village and on the main square. Hotels and rooms for rent are also available. The beautiful sandy beach called Chrissi Amoudia (Golden Sand) is at a short distance away from Panagia.
