Potamia

Location on the map

Built on a mountain side, it took its name from a very small river which crosses the village. The inhabitants of the village are engaged with tourism and agriculture. The village is proud of the museum of Polygnotos Vagis, a famous sculptor, distinguished in America (1894 – 1965). Since 1930 he was engaged with the technique of direct sculpting on multiform stones. His works decorate many museums in America. The museum of Potamia exhibits excellent works of the Thassian artist.
