Η περιοχή, είναι άρρηκτα δεμένη με την ομορφιά και την ιστορία του επιβλητικού Κάστρου του Πλαταμώνα.
The Venetian Castle is an outstanding historical monument, a "trademark" of the area and one of the most important sights of the prefecture.
Built in a strategic position, it dominates space and time. It is preserved in very good condition as maintenance and restoration work has been done recently and is easily accessible on foot.
The illumination of the Castle at night adds to the prestige of the scenery and, during the summers, theatrical performances, music concerts and other cultural events take place within the framework of the Olympus Festival.
