Paleokastro, Samos Island

The village of Paleokastro is situated some 5 kilometers southeastern to the town of Samos, surrounded by hills that hide the village from the side of the sea. It owes its name to the ruins an old castle, found very close to the village. The village has been established in early 17th century. Its residents live on tourism and on agriculture, mainly of olive trees; in the past, tobacco was the most important product of the village.

Southeastern to Paleokastro, at the channel between Samos and Asia Minor, are situated the lovely beaches of Poseidonion, Kerveli and Psili Ammos, with nice and calm sea attracting many tourists in summer. Within the same area it is found the cape of Krokos, the closest point of Samos to the opposite coast of Asia Minor; the two places are only some 1200 meters far away to one another. The nearby settlements of Argyro, Klima, Poseidonion, Haravgi and Psili Ammos, counting some 130 permanent residents in total, are also part of Paleokastro.
