Near Kipia you will come to Exohi and Akrovouni, villages known for their characteristic grey-green schist stone, which is imported to all over the world! You will love the tavernas in these two villages, set within plane and poplar trees.

Kipia has been declared a traditional settlement since 1978. The remains of a sanctuary from the Hellenistic and Roman periods as well as those of an Early Christian basilica have been found to the southeast of the village.

Also at Kipia you will find the workshop of the icon painter Themistokles Simitsakos, who paints according to the strict rules of Mt Athos, yet using the freshness of his soul as a counterweight.

Distance from Kavala:
Exohi 24 km
Kipia 27 km
Akrovouni 29 km

In 2010 the Waxworks Museum run by the artist Theodoros Kokkinides opened in Kipia. Here you can come face-to-face with famous people from the Greek and international art and political spheres!
