Photographer's Note

The Venetian Fort of Naoussa is located in the old port and it is the most characteristic spot of this lovely town. Originally constructed in the 15th century by the Venetians, the fortress was used as a watchtower for pirate and enemy attacks and as a frontline in times of war. Its location was very convenient for surveiling the Aegean Sea and due to its architecture, it was very difficult for enemy ships to approach the close port where commercial ships used to moor.
