Kavala Guide

Located in the east of Macedonia, in northern Greece, is the city and port of Kavala. The city lies on the Bay of Kavala and is just across from the Greek island of Thasos, and is roughly 160 km from Thessaloniki, 37 km from Drama and 56 km from Xanthi. The city has a rich history and there are many things to see and do whilst there. Dominating the top of the peninsular, where the old city stood, is the Castle of Kavala. Repeated reconstruction work and repairs to the castle's fortifications by the Byzantines, Venetians and Turks has left traces on its walls. In its current form, the castle was built in the first part of the 15th century on a foundation dating back to the Byzantine period. Other sites of interest include Kamares (the old aqueduct) which was constructed in the Roman/Byzantine period, the Imaret and the House of Mehmet Ali in the Old Town square.

From the city's port ferries operate to Agios Efstratios, Limnos, Lavrio, Kirikos, Chios, Karlovassi, Psara, Vathi and Mytilene.

The island's long history can easily be observed in the many ancient monuments that are spread around the island. Popular attractions include the Medieval Castle and the island's interesting museums.
