Stageira & Olympiada Ancient Stageira gallery 5 of 38
The dirt track to the northern entrance to Ancient Stageira from Olympiada village, Halkidiki, Macedonia, Greece at My Favourite Planet

The path to the northern entrance to Ancient Stageira from Olympiada village.
How did we get here?

See directions on gallery pages 2 - 4.

Here is the dirt track to the northwest entrance of Stageira from ground level.

To the left of the track is the small cove and sandy beach, visible in the photo on the previous page.

Just around the next bend is the northwest gate to the archaeological site of Stageira.

The 5th century BC classical fortification wall (see photo below) can be seen climbing diagonally up the South Hill to the acropolis.

On the next page we go back to the main entrance to Stageira, at the south side of the archaeological site.

If you find the directions confusing, see the interactive map of the site on gallery page 7.

The western section of Ancient Stageira's Classical fortification wall at My Favourite Planet

The top of the western section of the Classical fortification wall, built in the 5th century BC.

A stepped path leads up the inside of the wall to the acropolis,
and there is a wooden viewing platform on one of the wall's towers.

See more photos and information about the wall and the acropolis on gallery pages 8-17.
