Paleochristian and Byzantine Monuments of Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is the metropolis of the North that retains the title of “co-capital” and formerly “co-ruler” city. It played a leading role in the Balkan region in terms of intellectual and artistic expression and has maintained its metropolitan character throughout its history. Today, the city is an open museum of Byzantine culture, as the surviving monuments span chronologically from the 4th century AD to the 15th century AD. The entry into the UNESCO list includes the most characteristic of these: 13 churches, the fortified wall with the famous Eptapyrgio and the Byzantine baths.
