Thrace is the meeting point of East and West, a mixture of multicultural heritage is reflected in the architecture of three great cities: Xanthi, Komotini, Alexandroupolis. Xanthi, built amphitheatrically at Rhodopes Mountains, has an old town with cobbled streets and mansions of Greek and Ottoman architecture. Alexandroupoli, a seaside town bordering Turkey and Bulgaria, has its lighthouse as a point of reference. Among the mountain villages of Thrace, stands out "Pomakochoria", a complex of 40 villages, north of Xanthi, with a special cultural and architectural identity.
