The church of Saint Athanasios
The church of Saint Athanasios is located within the walls of the Genoese Castle, a traditional settlement in the centre of Thassos. According to an inscription, the church was erected in 1804 and is said to be built on the ruins of an old castle that preexisted in the area.


The church of St Giorgi is located at the village of Kalivia in Limenaria
There are two beautiful burial tombs, on which one could clearly see the inscriptions and forms depicted on them a few years ago. About 20 years ago, parts of columns, probably of Doric order, where found at the southwest part of the church and paradoxically only one part is preserved to this date at the yard of the church. So, anyone could therefore draw the conclusion that the church of St Giorgi is built either on an ancient temple or on some other building.
