Olimpi is built on a flat country away from sea. It is a medieval village of the 14th century and has been qualified as a preservable monument. The village has nicely preserved the pattern of a medieval "village-castle", walled by the external walls of outlining houses joint together, with no doors neither windows overlooking to the outside, but just to the inside of the village. The alleys are narrow, stone-built and connected with the central square. The functional purpose of those houses ensured the defense of the entire village in case of pirate attacks. Among the most interesting sites, Agia Paraskevi church is remarkable for its wood-carved icon screen and Olimpi Bank is a two-storey building with oblong halls, dating back to the Middle Ages and preserved in good condition. Just outside the village, close to Agia Dinami beach and the church of the same name, there is a cave precipice with a fine natural decoration of stalactites, open to visitors since the year 2000.
