Metochiou Fortress of Zografou Monastery

  7 km before Nea Moudania, lies Zografou village which is inhabited by refugees. The village was built around the establishments of "metochi" (property belonging to a religious institution) of Zografou Monastery at Agion Oros, and was named after it. Today, what has been saved from "metochi" is the Byzantine fortress which is a construction of the 14th century, as well as the church, founded in 1842, and other subsidiary buildings from the 19th century. The monumental fountain of "metochi", built in 1853, is of great interest and lies only 50 km on the western side of the fortress.
