Ouranoupolis is built on the place where the ancient Ouranoupolis used to be, initially established in 315 bc. by Aristarchus, the brother of Cassander. Ouranoupoli which is located 145 km away from Thessaloniki and 90 km away form Stauro, used to be glebe land for Vatopedi abbey and it provided all the expenses from which it and its tower were built before 1344.

Every day starting from the small harbour in the shadow of the Tower, the boats take people to Daphne, the main Athos port .
