Photographer's Note

Ouranoupoli is a city located on the borders of Mount Athos, with the rest of Greece, from Thessaloniki is 120 km and rewards the visitor with its natural beauty, and combines mountain and sea.
A seaside location at the foot of Mount Athos with historical and architectural grandeur but also many opportunities for rest and relaxation.
It is worth visiting the Tower of Prosforio, located next to the harbor and is the largest and best preserved tower in Halkidiki. Built before 1344 by the monastery of Vatopedi. In 1928 the couple moved there (Loch), who supported the refugees of the era and created a tradition of handmade rugs, which lasts until today.
