Due to its rich history, Thassos has numerous great archaeological and historical sights. We recommend you to visit the Archaeological Museum in the capital city of Thassos,the ancient theatre and market. Also,another place worth visiting is the museum of the sculptor Polygnotos Vages in PotamiaAliki with its ancient settlement and mines.The submerged mine at the edge of the peninsula and the huge boulders that still lie on the seabed indicate that in this place there was a work-site that had been operating,without stop,for 12 centuries(from 6B.C. to 6A.D.).
Just before Aliki , on the route from Potamia to Limenaria you can visit the monastery of Archangel Michael. At the mone they keep a relic(a piece of the nails from the Jesus cross).
We strongly recommend you to visit the folkrore Museum of Theologos and Limenaria.
