Platamonas Castle, Platamon

The Platamon Castle is a Crusader castle in northern Greece and is located southeast of Mount Olympus, in a strategic position which controls the exit of the Tempe valley, through which passes the main road connecting Macedonia with Thessaly and southern Greece. The tower, which overlooks the highway, is an imposing medieval fortress.Important discoveries are the board of Hellenistic wall, that confirm the suggestion that on this position was the ancient Greek city Herakleion and the gate in the wall of the donjon. The core of the city Herakleion remains to be found, but it is posited that it is located on the northwest side of the castle's hill due to shells and coins found during recent excavations.

  • Neat Castle and simple. For the entrance to the Castle climb (walk) an uphill and stairs. The cost is low for adults while children are free. A short walk is interesting for the kids but want attention on the walls.

  • A visit at least once in the Castle worth. Of the best-preserved castles. Worth the view and the location of the Castle, traveling in other seasons, but at least whoever visits should come in no later than 2:00 pm to catch up to see it, because at 3:00 pm closes!
