Maroneia

Municipality Sapes-Maroneia, is situated along the coast. It is a place inhabited since the Neolithic time is the region of Maroneia. In the Homeric epic, the Odyssey, in the chapter on the Cyclops, it is mentioned that the King of Marona and is famous for his wine. This is the first written source mentioning Maroneia. Indeed, situated in the site is a cave associated with the Cyclops and wine drinking. In Maroneia we come to the start of the “Wine Road” or the “Wine heritage trail” separating traditional settlements from the archaeological site of Maroneia.  Also of interest and worth visiting the is well preserved ancient theatre and the museum with its fine collection of antiquities.
