Platamonas is a town and sea-side resort in south Pieria prefecture, Central Macedonia, Greece, near to the tallest mountain in Greece, the famous Mount Olympus.
Platamonas has a population of about 1,500 permanent inhabitants and it’s regarded as one of the most significant tourist destinations in Pieria. According to tradition its name originates either from the platan trees or from the broad sandy beaches, both of which can be found in the areas surrounding the town. Its most famous landmark is the venetian Castle of Platamon. The town is 54 km from the city of Larisa and 38 from the city of Katerini.
