Photographer's Note

Ouranoupolis, a truly remarkable city that is located on the borders of the human with the divine, as it unites the Holy Mountain (Agio Oros) with the remaining part of Greece, is 120 km from Thessaloniki and amply rewards each visitor with its natural beauty, as it harmoniously combines the mountain with the sea.
It is a seaside region at the feet of Athos with a historic and architectural grandeur that also provides many opportunities for rest and peace.
The characteristic of Ouranoupolis is the peace that prevails generating exaltation of the soul even to the visitor who has been worn down by daily life.
Remarkable architectural monument of Ouranoupolis is the tower of "Prosforiou", today is used as a museum.
Ouranoupolis is the entrance of Agio Oros, only by ferry.
