Stratoni, a coastal village built in the gulf
of Ierissos, numbers today approximately 1000 residents. In this region, ruins of the Roman Period have been found. The foundation of Stratoni as a constituted settlement dates back to the mid 19th century but has always had an unbreakable tie with the mining activity.
In 1932 the village was extensively damaged by an earthquake. In the following years, the village was almost entirely rebuilt from the start.
An ancient war memorial, which was found in the region (1st century b.c.) presenting impressive statues, tomb, vessels, e.t.c, indicates the position were the city Stratonikia flourished. From this, two statues clearly stand out, a man’s and a woman’s (the woman has been named “Lady of Stratoni”), which can be admired in the Museum of Polygyros.
