The village Kazaviti on the island of Thassos in Greece
The village Kazaviti, also called “Megalos Prinos” or “Megalo Kazaviti”, is located about five kilometers inland on the west side of the island of Thassos in Greece. Beside the big village there is the small, newer village of Mikro Kazaviti on the opposite side of the valley. Findings of slag remnants, clay pots, ancient tombs and remains of buildings are indications of an early settlement of the valley. The story probably goes back to the prehistoric times.
In no other village on Thassos are so many original old houses preserved. The village square is the most beautiful on the island. Large agricultural terraces and many wine press testify to a great wine-growing history.
Unfortunately the place is inhabited only by very few people all year round. Most of the renovated houses are used as a holiday home and are mostly inhabited in summer. This greatly changes the appearance of the village.
Through the forest fire on 10 September 2016, many old houses in Kazaviti were destroyed. A whole part of the village burned down to the ground.
