The Myth of the Ammon Zeus

The Myth of the Ammon Zeus

Built during the 1960s, the Ammon Zeus Hotel was among the very first holiday accommodations to begin operating in the now famous Peninsula of Chalkidiki. The land on which the hotel sits was originally owned by Mount Athos. At the time it was serving as the Russian Monastery of St. Panteleimon. You can still see the remains of the homonymous chapel as well as a Medieval style wall that have stood since 1860.

During the excavation for the hotel, the owners stumbled upon what came to be one of the most important antique monuments in northern Greece. The remains of the Temple of Ammon Zeus, built during the 4th century B.C. This was the inspiration for the hotel’s illustrious name.
