Prinos

Prinos is one of the largest villages of Thassos and is located just four kilometres from the ferry port of Skala Prinos.

The village is built like an amphitheatre, into a hill at the entrance of the valley which leads to the higher mountain villages of Kazaviti.

A popular year-round attraction that is the only one of its kind on Thassos, for visitors and residents from all around the island, is an outdoor market (bazaar). It takes place in the town's open square every Monday morning. Visitors can obtain excellent quality fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, pickles and preserves, curtains, cushions, bedding and towels, kitchen items and all clothing and footwear at great prices, and at the same time enjoy a unique lively atmosphere.

Throughout the year there are organized excursions and hiking in the mountains as well as nature activities which visitors are warmly welcomed to join in.
