The town of Serres is a city with a rich history and with many hidden secrets for you to discover ... It is a vibrant city that never sleeps, the people are hospitable and there are many great things to see.

In the heart of the city is Liberty Square. Around it the surrounding blocks of buildings, are a series of footpaths, bars, taverns and cafes.
