On Friday morning we visited the Platamon Castle, a castle of the middle Byzantine period located in strategic position in the southeast of Mount Olympus. We were guided around the castle and enjoyed the view from up there.

Note: The visit to the archeological site of ancient Leivithra was cancelled as a precaution measure against the Coronavirus spread. So we just did the open-air visits to the castle of Platamon and the traditional village of Old Panteleimonas.
