Day Twenty One, Thessaloniki, Greece
Thessaloniki is right on the Ocean and though is was an overcast day there was something interesting at every turn.
This structure that sits next to the shore is called the White Tower and was at one time a prison. The White Tower was built in the middle of the 15th century. Now it is a 6 floor museum.
Thessaloniki has been built on ancient ruins, some of which are being unearthed.
The remains of a fortification wall and entrance which was built in the times of the Byzantine Empire. History is depicted on the walls as a reminder to all that pass through.
The 4th century AD Rotunda of Galerius, one of several Roman monuments in the city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Here is the dome of the Rotunda.
As I was driving back to Athens the famous Mount Olympus was before me.
