From Chrysokefalo towards the east, the road continues up to Lefkogeia, a village located at an altitude of 600 m, 8 km away from Nevrokopi. There we can see a post-Byzantine church dedicated to the Beheading of John the Baptist, built in 1836; a three-nave wooden basilica that features an imposing bell tower dating back to 1887 on its western side. Inside the village there are many old houses with “hagiati” or outward-projecting balconies with enclosing windows, while nowhere else are there so many old buildings built with handmade bricks. The inhabitants are mainly engaged in agriculture, while there are also organic pork production units.
