The village of Kastania lies in the western part of Samos. It is built amidst dense vegetation on the hillsides of mount Fterias, which is part of the Kerkis mountain range. It was named after the abundant chestnut trees that grew there in the past. With its architecture, greenery and beautiful squares, the village boasts a distinctive beauty and a unique charm. There are a lot of springs in the area, which was originally inhabited by settlers from Epirus, a region in north-western Greece. During the World War II Kastania became a symbol of the Samian resistance movement. (mygreektrip.com)
