The Castle and the Acropolis was built in the 15th century, on the ruins of an older Byzantine castle. The outer walls embraced the whole peninsula of Panagia, which was then the core of the settlement. The city start expanding outside the walls, only after 1864.
Nowadays, the castle houses a small café and a scene and many concerts and theaters take place in this idyllic surrounding, during the summer months. Don't miss the panoramic view from the castle's tower.

How to get there: You can walk, following the Theodorou Poulidou street ? the main street of the old city ? and then turn left on Feidiou street (there are signs). There is also a tourist train, that departs from the lower part of the central square (plateia Eleftherias), just in front of the National Bank, on weekdays every hour from 8.00 until 14.00 and from 17.00 until 20.45 and, on Sundays, on 9.30, 10.00, 11.00, 12.00, 12.30, 17.30, 18.00, 19.00, 20.00. You still have to walk the last part of the route.
The entrance to the Castle is 2,00 ? for adults and 1,50 for children. The little train is free of charge.

Address: Acropolis of Kavala - On the top of the old city
