Ancient Town of Itanos
Founded in prehistoric times and believed that to have taken the name from Phoenix or Kouritis Itanos. The first historical testimony of Itanos exists in Herodotus histories. Itanos was a large transshipment port especially for those travelling to the East. It flourished during the Classical period, as seen from the buildings, temples (Asklepios, Fortune, Athena) and its silver coins. Your visit to the ancient city of Itanos can be combined with a refreshing dip in the waters of Erimoupolis behind the mountain.
