The history of Polichrono begins in 650 b.c when the Eretrieis came to the Peninsula of Kassandra and established their colony in Neapoli, which despite all the barbarian invasions managed to survive until 540 a.c. when it was totally ruined by the Huns.
In the 11th century cattle-breeders farmers gathered in this area and built “Polyhro” village, which name was given due to the large number of flowers that the region had.
