Typical old house in Agios Konstantinos - Samos

IMG_0085 (2)

The beautiful coastal settlement of Agios Konstantinos offers a very long beach and preserves elements of traditional architecture. The village was named after a church, built in 1890. Agios Konstantinos consists of two neighborhoods the one is 'Pano Agios' which is on the mountain and the other is coastal. The neibouring ravine Aidonia (Nightingale) is particularly beautiful. At nightfall, one can listen to the song of the nightingales. Agios Konstantinos along with Margarites, Valeontades, Manolates, Stavrinides and Ambelos were once the 'six-village neighborhood'. Now all this villages are separate communes, allthough Margarites and Valeontandes are almost abandoned. During the antique times, there used to be a large village in that beautiful area between mountain and sea. There are still remains of ancient buildings to prove that. The area produces wine, honey, chestnuts and many more. The people living there are mostly farmers or fishermen.

On the road to Pyrgos - Thats my World

The village is built near Amfillisus River. According to tradition, a shepherd's family, coming from Peloponnesus, found the location very pleasant and decided to settle in the area. The people are mostly farmers producing olive-oil, wine and honey. The visitor can find many stores selling honey and fragrant herbs. An ancient curved rock found in the area led to the assumption that there used to be a "Temple of Ion" to the east of the village.
