23rd part of Drama cultural routes - ALLEYS OF HAGIA VARVARA

 
 
ALLEYS OF HAGIAVARVARA PERPENDICULAR TO PERDIKKAS STREET and to Venizelou Street, there is a network of narrow ancient traditional passageways (Helli, Navarinon, Hydra, Hagia Varvara, Kilkision, Eleftheria Christakis-Georgiadis, Plataiai, Niki, Votsis, Othon and Lisias Streets), which lead to the springs and to Hagia Varvara church. Until 1950, many of them were paved with uncut stones from torrent beds that the inhabitants of Drama used as paving and masonry material. During the Byzantine Period walls were built with this material. In these alleys visitors can admire numerous preserved old Macedonian style dwellings, mansions and tobacco warehouses.
