Galaxidi is a 2.5h to 3h drive from the capital Athens and a relatively popular weekend retreat.Modern Galaxidi is built on the site of ancient Haleion, a city of western Locris. Traces of habitation are discernible since prehistoric times with a peak in the Early Helladic Period (Anemokambi, Pelekaris, Kefalari, islet Apsifia). A significant Mycenaean settlement has been located at Villa; the hill of St. Athanasios also revealed a fortified Geometric settlement (ca. 700 B.C.). In the Archaic and Classical period (7th-4th centuries) was developed the administrative and religious centre at the modern site of Agios Vlasis. It seems that in ca 300 B.C. the present site was settled and surrounded by a fortification wall; it is the period of the expansion of power of the Aetolian League. Haleion flourished throughout the Hellenistic and Roman period until the 2nd century A.D.
