Alexandroupoli is one of the more recent cities of Greece, built on a crossroads of sea and land uniting Europe and Asia.

It began as a simple fishing village in the mid-19th century and is today the largest city in Thrace by population and expanse.

The city’s symbol is the Lighthouse, recognized as a cultural heritage monument, which lies on the west side of the harbor. It began operations in 1880 in order to support the navigation of the Hellespont.
