The Fortress of Kavala
The Fortress of Kavala, perched above the city, is a 15th-century structure based on the foundations of the Byzantine Acropolis of Christoupolis, the city’s former name, which was destroyed in 1391. The citadel has endured many reconstructions and additions throughout the years by the Byzantines, Venetians and Ottomans. A visit to the fortress, also called the Acropolis of Kavala, allows you to explore the inner court, the cistern, the towers, the arsenal and the guardhouse. It even includes an open-air theatre where many events take place every year, as well as a pleasant cafeteria where you can relax after your visit.
