Platamon Castle

Platamon Castle

The Byzantine castle of Platamon is one of the finest and best preserved castles in Greece which is situated on the southeast foot of mountain Olympus on a hill overlooking the sea, a position that has commanded the shortest route between Macedonia and Thessaly since ancient times. It was built in 1204 A.C. Inside the castle there are two churches from the Middle Byzantine period and Early Christian period. The tower of the castle is very high and the architecture of the walls is excellent. From the tower the view is perfect. You can see the mountain of Gods Olympus, the sea (Thermaikos gulf) and if the weather is clear you can see Halkidiki.
