Afytos, or Athitos, is a hilltop seaside village of stone houses and cobbled streets overlooking the Toroneos Gulf, with a popular beach below. The 1800s Agios Dimitrios church dominates the main square, while traditional restaurants and sea-view bars run along the cliffs and shore. Ceramics, fabrics, and art are shown at the Folklore Museum, and the Afitos Festival brings street art and live music in summer. Visitors like to come to Afytos to stroll around its lovely streets, enjoy a meal or meze at its cafés and tavernas, and search its small shops for gifts and souvenirs of folk art or traditional products, such as jars of honey, soap made with olive oil, or ornate gourds – known as kratounes – once used by the townspeople to transport water.
