The magic of Kavala, the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia, is captured in this video by Up Drones.
The city is amphitheatrically built on the slopes of Mt. Symvolo and forms one of the most picturesque towns in Greece.
Initially, the city’s core was restricted to the district of Panayia, which has been uninterruptedly inhabited since the 7th century BC. It includes important sites such as the Castle, the Acropolis, the Imaret and the old Lighthouse.
Kavala boasts a unique character reflecting its past: neoclassical mansions and big tobacco warehouses evoke the memory of when an affluent middle-class population thrived.
In the “Mecca of tobacco” as Kavala was named in the past, thousands of tobacco workers, male and female, earned their living.
