We were impressed by the scale of the fort for our time, it contained a whole city, several temples, a special reservoir for all inhabitants and many other auxiliary buildings. Besides, the view is incredible!   It is absolutely advisable to see!

The perfect location to have an amazing view of Olympus Riviera, and Olymus Mountain. Also Halkidiki is visible from that place!

I cannot say Platamonas Castle is a special place to visit. It is only an old fortress with well-preserved walls. It is close to Nei Pori and Platamonas making it very easy to visit when one had enough time on the beach.

A nice place to visit and observe the history and the surround grounds. A lot of open ground and shadows. Also you can enjoy the paragliders that flight in the vicinity.
