Limenaria Architecture


The architecture of Thassos is like a puzzle: colours, styles and life stories, constitute the pieces, the combination of which give soul to every building, street and square. Macedonian architecture seems to dominate in houses and churches: stone and marble blend with wood to create arched doors, ornate roofs and traditional balconies and yards full of flowers! Typical examples are those of Theologos and Kazaviti that all year long offer the visitor an effortless trip into the past and nature’s grandeur! The scenery changes at Limenas and Limenaria! There neoclassical motifs with modern decorative touches dominate: two or three-storey houses with luxurious facades and roofs with gables but also minimal ones with strict lines and classic materials such as stone and wood that keep a tranquil and discreet position in the space!
