Elementary School of Sykia


The stone-built Primary School  in the center of the village dominates the magnificent old school of Sykia, Macedonian architecture with the stone columns, built in 1870.

The builders were stone craftsmen from Epirus and used trained mules and special scaffolds that walked over carrying the granite boulders high on the building.

The two columns at the entrance of the school have been made by the master and the head of the workshop, and the oldest craftsman. A miraculous technique and architecture that you do not meet anywhere else in Halkidiki.
