Anacopia Fortress, New Athos

4.9
Begun in the 2nd century, Anacopia Fortress has the power to transport visitors back in time. The tourist site, partially restored to its ancient glory, features a Roman-style tower offering sweeping views of the nearby city, the sea, and the slopes of the region's mountains. The small Christian church near the tower features early Christian paintings and symbols. Mind the steep steps and prepare for the climb by wearing a good pair of shoes.
