I just returned from a holiday in Greece. I love this country, and I always go to places where I have not been before. This time I enjoyed the beauties of Nei Pori, Leptokaria, and the beautiful, small town of Platamon. quiet place, clean beach, crystal clear water, is the right choice for an idyllic, relaxed holiday. Platamon is located on the shores of the Aegean Sea, 25 km southeast of Mount Olympus.
This is an ideal destination for many reasons. Young people in Platamon do not leave for fun, but mostly because of diving, and the older ones are fed with fresh night air, and the waters that flow with Olimp.
This seaside resort offers you many restaurants and cafes, but what distinguishes it from other resorts is the famous Byzantine fortress castle from the 10th century. The fort is located in a strategic position at the exit of the Tempi Valley, and served to control the road from Macedonia to Thessaly and the south of Greece.
It is believed that most of the fortress was built by the French king Bonifacio Monfaratsky, in 1205 , as evidenced by the remains of the ramparts dating to the 6th and 9th and 10th centuries. After the fall of Constantinople, after the Fourth Crusade in 1204, Boniface Monfaratsky, who occupied Thessaly, gave the fortress to King Roland Pisky. He gave her the form we see today.
Although I was on vacation in May, the weather was great for sunbathing and swimming. Only one day was with the clouds, so we used it for a walk. I’m back home now, but in September I go again to visit this beautiful country.
