Thasos is a town on the island of Thasos in northern Greece. It is the capital and main town of the island. The town is also called Limenas Thasou
or for short just Limenas
to distinguish the town from the island on which it is situated. The town is located on the northwest corner of the island, approximately 17 nautical miles south of Kavala.
The current town was built west from the ancient town. In and around Thasos, there are many ruins dating from antiquity. Most of the finds from local archaeological sites are on display at the Archaeological Museum of Thasos in Thasos town.
