It was about 1530 and when Colin a friend of mine suggested we walk up to the Castle, so off we went, it was further than we thought and by the time we got there they were closing the gates so I never got to go inside, the walk was worth it as the old town is full of hidden restaurants, cafes and bars. Well worth a visit.
The Castle of Kavala dominates the top of the peninsula, where the old city is built. During the Byzantine period and later, repeated reconstruction works and fortification repairs were made by the Byzantines, Venetians and Turks. Substantially, all the phases of the Modern History affect the castle and left their traces on its walls. The castle (Citadel) in its current form was built in the first quarter of the 15th century, relying on foundation from the Byzantine period.
