“White Tower is the main attraction of Thessaloniki. It is a fortification work of the 15th century Ottoman (probably built between 1450-70). It is now considered a characteristic monument of Thessaloniki and is what has been saved by the demolished Ottoman fortification of the city. The present form of the tower replaced a Byzantine fortification of the 12th century, to be used as a garrison of the Yanitsaron and as a prison of death. Today it operates as a museum and is one of the most famous building-symbols of cities in Greece. It has 6 floors, 34 meters high and 70 meters perimeter. The museum of White tower provides many historical facts about Thessaloniki and its ticket costs 4 euro. Maps: goo.gl/maps/dYX1viw7XLF2 Street: Leoforos Nikis”

“South of the Rotunda was the triumphal arch (known today as “Kamara”), probably built by the city of Thessaloniki between 298 and 305 A.D. to commemorate Galerius’ victorious campaign against the Persians. In its final form, the structure consisted of eight piers arranged in two parallel rows, four in each row. Between the piers were created three arched openings, of which the central one was wider and higher than the other two. The four central piers, which carried marble slabs with relief decoration, were larger than the outer piers and were connected by semi-circular arches supporting a dome. Today only three of the eight original piers are preserved (the position of the destroyed central piers on the east is indicated on the sidewalk of Egnatia Street by a different paving), of which two carry reliefs depicting scenes from the Romans’ victorious campaigns against the Persians in 297 A.D., in addition to symbolic images propagandizing Galerius’ military might and the Tetrarchy’s power. ”

“The famous Rotonda of Thessaloniki, Macedonia: The Rotonda (or Rotunda) is one of the most important Roman monuments in Thessaloniki. It stands just next to the Arch of Galerius in the city center and it is also known as the Church of Agios Georgios. This cylindrical structure was built in 306 AD by the Roman tetrarch Galerius, who intended it to be his grave. At first, it worked as a temple but it remains unknown to which god this temple was dedicated. Eventually, Galerius died in 311 AD and he was buried in Felix Romuliana, modern Serbia. In the 4th century AD, the Byzantine emperor Constantine I converted it into an Orthodox church and many frescoes were painted inside, some of which survive today on the walls of Rotonda. In the 14th century, the Ottomans occupied Thessaloniki and in 1590, the Rotonda was converted into a mosque. In fact, a minaret was added to the building that has been restored and survives till today. In 1912, the Greeks deliberated Thessaloniki and Rotonda was converted into an Orthodox church again, till 1979, when a strong earthquake caused serious damage to the structure. Presently, the Rotonda has been restored and works as a sculpture museum. Also, it frequently hosts various exhibitions. The Rotonda has a diameter of 24,5 meters and its walls are more than 6 meters thick, which has protected the monument from time, sieges and earthquakes. This is one of the oldest Orthodox churches and has been included in the UNESCO list of the World Heritage Sites. In fact, all Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki were included in this list in 1988. ”

“Get your Warhol on at the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art A 5-min walk away from the White Tower, you’ll encounter this world-class art hub where prolific international gallerist and collector Alexandros Iolas donated 30 works of global fame (Warhol and Akrithakis are among the permanent collection). Next, take the short taxi ride to Aristoteleous neo-classical main square back on the old seafront. From there, weave your way through the kaleidoscopic open-air Modiano markets dating back to the 12th century, a seductive mesh of scent, sound and colour, dotted with exotic delicatessens in the city heart.”
