Thessaloniki - White Tower - Museum of Thessaloniki White Tower - Museum of Thessaloniki
Lefkos Pirgos
The symbol of Thessaloniki is undoubtedly the White Tower. Is one of the most recognisable buildings of Greece and it was part of the defensive walls of Thessaloniki in medieval times. Through the years it was used as an army building and as a prison. The last time it was renovated was in 1985 and since then it is used as an exhibition site and museum of the history of Thessaloniki. White Tower is 34 metres high and has six floors with an internal stair that is built on the wall and circles the building from the inside. It wasn’t always a sole building but it had walls surrounding it. The walls were demolished in 1917, after the liberation of Thessaloniki in 1912. It is open Tuesday-Sunday, 08:00-15:00.
