Ancient Tower of Thimonia

The ancient tower of Thimonia is located close to the south coast of Thassos. Despite the lack of information signs on site it’s still an impressive place to visit, you get an impression of the original size of the tower and the views are worth it.

Ancient Agora

The Ancient Agora is close to the centre of Limenas and it's the remains of a market place, cultural and political centre that was built between 400 and 200 BC. Inside you’ll find a number of ruins from previous structures as well as columns, stone carvings and more.

Acropolis

The Acropolis of Thassos is set up in the hillside above the capital Limenas. It’s the remains of an ancient settlement with stone walls, an amphitheatre, castle, temple and caves. Getting to the Acropolis is a bit of a walk but worth it as the views are superb.

Theologos

Theologos is a traditional village built into the natural beauty of the Thassos hillside. Once the capital of the island, now it's a small village with winding cobbled streets that's lovely to spend a morning or afternoon wandering around, exploring and enjoying the scenery.

Alyki

There isn’t much to Alyki as it’s really just a couple of beaches a trio of tavernas on the main beach, a mini market and a few places to stay including some old stone houses between the two beaches that are available to rent. There’s no village centre as such.

Limenas

Limenas is the capital and largest town on Thassos and is often referred to as Thassos Town. It's home to the main port on the island and links to Keramoti port on the mainland. It has everything you need including plenty of hotels, a wealth of restaurants.

Venetian Lighthouse

The Venetian lighthouse dates back to the 16th century, it's a round building right on the coast, just behind it is a small villa and the whole site is overlooked by a more modern lighthouse. The house and venetian lighthouse were renovated in mid 2018.

Assos Castle

Assos castle is in the hills above the fishing village of Assos. It's just under an hours drive from Argostoli. The remains of the castle consist of just the external walls and an entrance gate but there's also an old chapel and the remains of other internal buildings too.

Saint George Castle

Saint George Castle is in a spectacular location and offers amazing views over the island. The castle is located off the main road that runs from Argostoli down towards Skala, it has no guide and there isn’t much to see other than the ruined walls.

Saint Theodoroi Lighthouse

Saint Theodoroi Lighthouse, also known as Fanari Lighthouse is found on the northern tip of the Argostoli peninsular in Kefalonia. Saint Theodoroi Lighthouse is a circular structure with 20 columns that stands 8m tall. It was built in 1828 by Charles Napier.
