The Kavala Municipal Museum opened in 1986 in a two-story neoclassical building in Kavala city centre, very close to the Town Hall. Early in 2001, the museum moved to a tobacco warehouse, in Kapnergati Square, a much larger space. The museum includes a gallery of modern art, a gallery of local painters and the archive and sculpture gallery of Greek-born US sculptor Polygnotos Vagis. Vagis was born in 1894 on Thasos, but emigrated to America, where he became a sculptor. He is regarded as one of the most outstanding sculptors of the twentieth century. He died in 1965 and bequeathed his personal collection of sculpture to the Greek state. It includes his Moons, Cyclops (1939, stone), Prophet (1925, marble), Groundhog (1933, chestnut), and Kouroi (plaster). Much of his work is also exhibited in the Polygnotos Vagis Municipal Museum at his birthplace of Potamia, on the island of Thasos. Between the ground floor and the first floor, appropriately designed showcases display a collection of birds which was assembled by Dr Anastassios Hourmouziadis and includes many species from the Nestos wetland, some now extinct. The Folklore Museum occupies the first floor, with exhibits that include folk costumes (mainly of the Sarakatsani), jewelry, embroidery, everyday utensils, tools of various trades, porcelain and metal stoves and gramophones. The museum has run a number of educational programmes for schoolchildren on the themes of folklore and environmental awareness. The museum also houses the city\u0092‘s history archive, which contains material from the Greek and British Foreign ministries, the archive of the Workers\u0092 Centre and an archive of photographs and cinema films connected with the history of Kavala. \t\t \t\t\tMacedonian Museums-31-Dimotiko Kavalas-138. jpg \t\t\t Costumes of Sarakatsani \t\t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\tMacedonian Museums-31-Dimotiko Kavalas-139. jpg \t\t\t Gallery \t\t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\tMacedonian Museums-31-Dimotiko Kavalas-140. jpg \t\t\t Groundhog \t\t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\tMacedonian Museums-31-Dimotiko Kavalas-141. jpg \t\t\t Kouroi \t\t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\tMacedonian Museums-31-Dimotiko Kavalas-142. jpg \t\t\t Moons

Kavala aqueduct

Located at 40.9, 24.35 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 4 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Kavala aqueduct, popularly known as the Kamares, is a well-preserved aqueduct in the city of Kavala, Greece, 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. This would have made it one of the few examples of Byzantine aqueducts, since Byzantine cities more typically used wells and cisterns rather than either maintaining existing Roman aqueducts or building new ones. The barrier wall was replaced with the present arched aqueduct during Suleiman the Magnificent's repair and improvement of the Byzantine fortifications. Some authors date that construction to the time of the 1522 Siege of Rhodes, but a more likely date is between 1530 and 1536. As late as 1911, it was still being used to supply the city with drinking water from Mount Pangaeus.
