Welcome to Kavala


Modern Kavala was once ancient Philippi's port. More infamously, Ottoman Pasha Mehmet Ali (1769–1849), eventual founder of Egypt’s last royal dynasty, ruled here. He ordered his fleet to slaughter tens of thousands of Christian Greeks on islands such as Kassos and Psara during Greece's independence struggle. Islanders still commemorate these events annually.
