Artist's Description

Kavala is the second largest city in northern Greece, the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia. It is situated on the Bay of Kavala, across from the island of Thasos. Kavala is located on the Egnatia motorway and is a two-hour drive to Thessaloniki.
The Kavala aqueduct, popularly known as the Kamares is a well-preserved aqueduct and is one of the city’s landmarks.
While the aqueduct is “probably of Roman origin”, the present structure dates to the 16th century. A Byzantine barrier wall of the early 14th century, built as part of the fortifications on the Kavala acropolis, probably also functioned as an aqueduct. The barrier wall was replaced with the present arched aqueduct during Suleiman the Magnificent’s repair and improvement of the Byzantine fortifications (between 1530 and 1536). As late as 1911, it was still being used to supply the city with drinking water from Mount Pangaeus.
