You will find a warm welcome for visitors in Amaliapolis, based on the ancient Greek concept of 'filoxenia' (hospitality towards strangers). With its great location on the Pagasitic Gulf, Amaliapolis is popular with holidaying Greek families but has very few foreign tourists. The village is also known locally as Mitzela. Surrounded by hills and next to the sea, the scenery in Amaliapolis is both relaxing and inspiring.
The village has two bakeries, two small
supermarkets, one of which also doubles as a butcher's, a greengrocer's
for fruit and vegetables, and a post office. In the next village, Sourpi, there is a larger supermarket and in the local market town of Almyros you will find a 24 hour health centre together with a large range of shops.
6th is the village feast day, the Metamorphosis of the Saviour, when as
well as religous celebrations and a procession around the village
streets, there is usually music and dancing in the village square until
the early hours of the morning.
