Points of interest:

Meadow:

Livadi is a mountain village with a special natural beauty that is built on Mount Ombrianos at an altitude of 800 meters at a distance of 40-45 km from Thessaloniki. It was founded at the end of the 15th century and was one of the villages that belonged to the waqf of Ishak Pasa, who in 1484 built in Thessaloniki the Alatza Imaret (a colorful almshouse) and other religious and charitable institutions.

From its privileged position, it offers a unique view towards the valley of Anthemounda and the horseshoe of the Thermaikos Gulf as well as Mount Olympus! The centenary plane tree dominates the central square of the village, while the stone church of Agios Athanasios, built in 1818, is also important.
