Distomo - Parnassos Greece

English Language Greek Language Russian Language

The town of Distomo in Central Greece is one of immense charm and beauty, and it located in a very picturesque part of Parnassos. The mountainous landscape blends perfectly with the flatness of the town. The town has a history dating back thousands of years, and the dicovery of three tombs dating from the pre-Mycenaean period show that the town had been inhabited since 1500 B.C.

In recent years, the town was again the subject of fame, but in a very bad sense. This is due to an event that took place during the Second World War in which 218 people, including babies, and old men and women, were killed by the Germans. This was the largest massacre that took place in Greece during the second World War. At Canalles Hill, you can see the mausoleum in memory of the victims of that dark day in June 1944.
