Aristotelis' school

In the region of Naoussa there are also important Macedonian graves at a village named Lefkadia, where 3 very important tomb monuments are situated. In proximity to this area you can find ancient Mieza and Aristoteles' school, who was Alexander the Great's teacher.

The Sanctuary of the Nymphs lies in a magnificent landscape, rich in water and vegetation, at the site called Isvoria*, in the vicinity of Naoussa. Shortly after the middle of the 4th century B.C., the whole area was properly arranged to house the School where the famous philosopher Aristotle gave lessons of Philosophy, Arts and Mathematics to young Alexander, son of the Macedonian king. In an area between two natural caves, the rock was carved in a rectangle and an Ionic colonnade was added to form a roofed, L-shaped stoa.

*Isvoria: Pronounced ish-vo-r-eh-ah, the name has its origin to a local Greek word which describes the water coming out of the earth
