Banitsa ( - Kari , Bulgarian/Macedonian[1]: , Banitsa or Banica) is a deserted former village in Serres prefecture, northern Greece. Its ruins are situated some 15 km north-east of the town of Serres, near the present-day village of Orini, on the southern slopes of the Vrontous mountains. During the Ottoman period it had a Bulgarian population.[2][3][4][5] The village was destroyed by the Greek Army during the Second Balkan War, and the population migrated to Bulgaria.[6]

Banitsa was the site of the death of the revolutionary Gotse Delchev, who was killed in a skirmish with Ottoman police forces in 1903.[7]
