Stop At: Rotunda

Built around the year 306 A.D. by the Romans, Rotunda is one of the oldest religious sites of the city. It was turned into a Christian temple around 400 A.D. The dimensions of the main structure are quite impressive.

It is located right on the shore of the Aegean Sea, and it is the landmark of Thessaloniki. The tower was built in the 15th century in order to replace an older 12th-century Byzantine fortification.
