Kavala, the child of the sea

Athina Ioannidou
Your rating: None

 Kavala is spread in the shape of an amphitheatre over the hillsides of Mount Symvolo, like a balcony in the sun overlooking the Aegean Sea, ready to take you in its arms and let you into its secrets.

Kavala awaits you to take you on a journey back in time, from antiquity to the present, to tell you stories from the past, when it met King Philip II, Apostle Paul and Mohamed Ali governor of Egypt, to take you by the hand and lead you through the narrow, stone-pavedstreets of the old town Panagia, up to the castle on the top of the hill, to show you the beaches of unique beauty and nearby destinations for great excursions and walks, to entertain you during its festivals and numerous cultural events all year round, and offer you the most fresh fish, traditional “tsipouro” and “kourabiedes”.
