Theologos is a traditional village built into the natural beauty of the Thassos
hillside. It’s close to the centre of the island, around an hours drive away from the capital Limenas
and roughly 10km inland, up the main road from Potos
Once the capital of the island, now it’s a small village with winding cobbled streets that’s lovely to spend a morning or afternoon wandering around, exploring and enjoying the stone built houses, cobbled streets and other scenery.
In Theologos you’ll find a folklore museum and a couple of churches dating back to the 17th century, there are also a number of good tavernas serving traditional Greek cuisine and souvenir shops selling hand made products.
As Theologos isn’t a popular tourist hot spot it doesn’t have that many hotels although there is a handful of them, the same goes for tavernas, again there’s a few but not many.
Theologos is recommended for those that like to get away from the crowds and explore a bit of the real Greece, it’s a charming place for a stroll, just remember to bring your camera.

Theologos isn't the place to go for a night out. It's a quiet and traditional village with a handful of tavernas. Most people that come here do so because they love the Greek way of life and simply want to enjoy an evening meal with a few glasses of wine, beer or Ouzo.
Theologos is kind of in the middle of nowhere on Thassos island, there's no other villages nearby. The closest tourist village is Kinira
but due to the winding roads it'll take 45 minutes to drive between the two.
You can actually get to Potos
in just 15 minutes, it's further away but has a direct link road so much easier.
If you want to visit the old Kastro
village then that's pretty close, it's a 20 minute drive though the winding roads.
