Photographer's Note

The Castle of Platamonas is one of the more beautiful and well preserved castles in Greece. It is located at the south-east foot of Olympus, on a hill over the sea, a position that controls the shortest road which connects since the ancient times Macedonia to Thessaly.
It was built by Lombard crusaders in 1204. Today the castle has got its initial shape, which is strengthened by eight towers. Some of its important findings are the Byzantine temple of the 10th – 11th century, the residences of the 10th century, the temple of the 18th century, a part of the Hellenistic wall and the gate at the wall of the keep.
