Kamares
The “Kamares” (transl. “Arches”) is probably the most distinctive place and building of Kavala. It is part of the aqueduct system that was build for the ancient city of Kavala. In its present form it came after the Sultan Suleiman the Great wanted to transfer water from the Soubasi area that had natural springs. The Kamares follow the inclinations of the ground and and have running taps at their bases for watering the animals. Construction was completed from 1520 to 1530 and the lower parts of the aqueduct makes evident that it was based on an older construction.
