It was past mid-September and unfortunately we did not have a lot of time and so decided to get a bird's eye view of these ruins which we had not expected to be so spread out.
We first ended up in the town and stopped at the museum and afterwards drove down the hill to see the fortifications and the bridge of Amphipolis. Following a brief stop here, we drove to the site of the Lion of Amphipolis is located, standing 8 meters tall and a popular destination for visitors. It is awesome!
We next drove Northeast to the Kasta Burial Mound located outside the small village of Mesolakia. The Kasta is an ancient macedonian tomb and the largest ever discovered in Greece (the perimeter is 500 meters long).The identity of the burial remains unknown and excavation is continuing and therefore the site is not open to the public.And so at the end of the dirt road leading to the entrance of excavation site, we made a U-turn at the barrier but were happy to have come so close to the Kasta Mound.More
