Maybe the most marked place of Alexandroupolis city centre.. I heard one of the tallest in Greece maybe in Europe existing since 1880 if I'm not mistaken..located in the main sea side avenue of the city and maybe the mitting place of locals and tourists.....More

The lighthouse is a landmark, but does not really offers anything but a nice picture. But the boulevard is a nice walk with a good view of the harbour.
