Karystos is a seaside city and a port of South Euboea. It has very good street plan with wide streets and squares made based on a design and at the order of the King of Greece Otto. Next to the harbour and the Archaeological Museum there is a 13th-century Venetian fortress (Bourtzi). In the framework of planning of cultural routes in Karystos, a Documentation and Restoration Study of selected monuments was drawn up, as well as a Promotion Proposal for the peri-urban monumental repository of the city (cobbled streets, bridges, fountains, etc.)
