Those of you who have already been to North Euboea must have promised yourselves to go back to live and enjoy once again the experience that the unique landscape and the beautiful beaches have to offer. Marvellous sands radiate a dazzling light as they blend in with the vast blue of the Aegean Sea.
This is the land of Artemis, the sea of Poseidon. It is Artemisio which strongly resists time and the siren call of modern life. As it has been famous for many years it attracts thousands of visitors throughout the year. And yet many of its secrets are stil hidden in untrodden paths and remote beaches isolated in the distant craggy cliffs.
Artemisio is located in the extreme northern part of Euboea on cape Artemisio. It was formed by the union of the following villages: Artemisio, Asminio, Gerakiou, Gouves, Kastri, Agdines, Agrivotano, Ellinika, Vasilika and Tsapournia.
It covers an area of 98 square kilometres lying 10 to 250 meters, on average, above sea level with a population of approcimately 5.000. The inhabitants are mainly engaged in tourism, agriculture and fishing.
The area was named after the goddess Artemis. The prairies and the wilderness of the mountainswas dedicated to her. The goddess used to go hunting in the woods casually dressed with a quiver on her shoulder and a bow in her hands. The symbols of the goddess Artemis vary according to the season. The deer has been the predominant symbol since the 5th century B.C..
