PALIOKASTRO ACROPOLIS, ANCIENT METHANA

PALIOKASTRO ACROPOLIS, ANCIENT METHANA

Near the quiet fisherman’s village of Vathy on the south side of Almyra beach there’s a prehistoric lava dome that represented an ideal location for a castle. Known in Greek as Paliokastro (old castle), this site is what is left of a larger settlement – possibly an ancient city – whose remains are most likely still buried in the area. If archeologists ever dig around this area, they should expect some fine discoveries.
