General information

Kastro village Thassos: Kastro is actually a castle built at the high altitude of 450 metres, surrounded by deep ravines and gorges, in the central part of Thassos. It used to be a lively and wealthy place during the Venetian times but nowadays, it is totally deserted.

The castle was built by the Gattilusie, a Genoan family and some of its walls still have inscriptions on it. The ruined walls surround the Church of Saint Athanassios, which is the oldest church of Thassos. In January, Kastro celebrates the feast day of Saint Athanassios and people from all over the island gather to eat, dance and sing.
