Kastania, Samos Island

The village of Kastania (meaning “chestnut tree” in Greek) is situated some 4 kilometers southern to Lekka and 9 kilometers southern to Karlovassi. The village is arranged on the mountainside of Fterias, at the foot of mountain Kerkis, within an environment of luxuriant green. According to local tradition, the first residents of the village came from Epirus in mainland Greece.

The village owes its name to the numerous chestnut trees that existed in the area in past times. In the past the people lived on timber-felling, since local timber was in great demand. Today, the main occupation of the locals is viniculture. From Kastania, you may continue to Marathokambos; the junction is found at the spot where the electricity windmills are.
