Archeologikos Choros Filippi
This site was named after Philip II of Macedon (who is most notable for being the father of Alexander the Great), but its main fame came from later years. In 42 B.C.E. a battle was fought here between the assassins of Julius Caesar and the future emperor Augustus, and almost 100 years later Saint Paul came here to preach. The evocative ruins include an ancient theater and Christian basilica.
