Visit the Castle of Platamonas
On a hill that dominates thermaikos bay is built the multi-singing Castle of Platamonas. The castle took its present form in 1204, from the Venetians. The latest excavations have revealed Byzantine and modern history while legends and traditions describe the glamour that surrounded the site. The view of Olympus, Thermaikos and the surrounding area is unsurpassed.
Visit Ancient Leibithra
Our next stop is at the foot of Olympus where are placed historically and archaeologically the Ancient Leibethra, a burial place of the mythical Orpheus. The reason we visit the Area of Levithra is because of the magnetic field that if we stop uphill and let our car go free, then the particular magnetic field will not let it fall backwards.
