There is no castle in Drama. There are however remains of the Byzantine walls in the northern neighborhood of the city, around the old -and tiny- church of Agia Sophia

There are also many pieces of the walls scattered all over the city many of which are part of private property. Sometimes the walls serve as boundaries (!) between properties.
