Elaiochori (Ελαιοχώρι) Kavala

Elaiochori is a village in the municipality of Paggaio, in the regional unit of Kavala in the region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. According to the 2011 census, it has 1,195 inhabitants. Until 1926, the settlement was called Kotskari, when it was renamed Eleochori. [1] It is built at the foot of Mount Symbol, at an altitude of 90. It is 25 km from Kavala. With the Kapodistrias program, it was administratively part of the municipality of Eleftheron and in the past it was the seat of a homonymous community since 1933. [2] The local community of Elaiochori also includes the settlement of Paralia Elaiochoriou, with 27 inhabitants according to the 2011 census.

Elaiochori is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. In 1950, a cooperative olive mill began operating in the village, making a significant contribution to the community's economy and continued to operate until 1970, when it was abandoned. The olive mill was rebuilt, along with its mechanical equipment, and in 2008 it was housed in an olive museum. [3] [4] The Diogenes Theater also operates in the village. [5]
