A journey in time: Life in the byzantine castle. Tour on foot in Kastorias city centre.

This tour appeals to those who want to take a trip through time and learn the history of the fortified city – and the life of its inhabitants – from the Byzantine era to the beginning of the 20th century.

Starting from the point where the central gates were situated, we follow – with the help of a historical map – both paths and main city roads, making stops at architectural landmarks and neighbourhoods so as to relive the cosmopolitan life of ancient Kastoria through historical sources and monuments.

The tour ends at the northern gate of the fortification which is still in existence.

For the purposes of this tour, we have prepared a special historical map for better orientation.

Duration: Approximately two hours

Suggested requirements: Camera, comfortable footwear, interest for history and architecture.
