In ancient times, Toroni was one of the most important cities of Chalkidiki, which was destroyed in the 6th century AD. from the raids of the Barbarians. At the end of the 8th century BC was colonized by the Chalkides, while during the Peloponnesian War there was the apple of the conflict between the Athenians and the Lacedaemonians. During the classical period, Toroni had two citadels, one at the south and one at Lakythos, where today the remains of a Byzantine fortress are preserved, probably destroyed during the Ottoman domination.
One of the most important attractions of Toroni is the church of Agios Athanasios. Built in the 5th century on a three-aisled basilica, it was destroyed in the 6th century and the foundations of which are a new temple, the mosaic of which survives in good condition until today. It is also worth visiting the cemetery of the Iron Age of the 11th century BC, where 134 tombs were excavated and 500 well-preserved findings came to light.
Large portions of the fortification are preserved, and the temple ruins, in the basement of which there was a twin tank. It was in a much better condition by the end of the 19th century when the Turkish state allowed an Italian contractor to use the fortification building materials to cobble down the streets of Thessaloniki and Constantinople.
