Kavala Castle   2 comments

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. Thanks for all the “likes” yesterday, but don’t forget you can leave a comment as well, and even follow me by clicking in the top righthand box, don’t forget to add your email address and you’ll get a reminded every time I post.

Another shot from Kavala, and some history.
Kamares (The old Aqueduct): The Old Aqueduct, the Medieval Aqueduct, is work of the Byzantine period, which held extensive repairs during the Ottoman rule, particularly during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent and Legislator (1530 AD approx.) This double arch structure was designed to bridge the peninsula of Panagia with the foot of the mountain of Lekani. It was used to carry water from mountain sources (six kilometers north from the ‘Mother of Water “or” Soumpasi “or” The Three Elms”) in today’s” Old Town “- Panagia, with the main water source situated at an altitude of 400 m and other complementary lower sources of supply. This grand monument has a length of 280 m consists of 60 arches of four different sizes and has a maximum height of 25 meters.

Kavala is a small city in Northern Greece, I was here to move a Jackup along side a platform, we had a couple of days in Kavala so managed to explore a bit, we saw this church way up the hill and walked up to it, I think it was worth the walk.
