In the upper town of Thessaloniki you can visit Genti Koule (Heptapyrgio); originally a prison back in 1890 but nowadays one of the most famous historical monuments, beautifully surrounded by picturesque taverns and an astonishing view of the sea!

But here you can explore the hidden inside of the monument.

By the way, Heptapyrgio ('Επταπύργιο') means "The seven towers".

December, the last month of the year. But for Thessaloniki, it is probably one of the most active months. The weather is pretty cold but not cold enough to wear heavy clothes.
Take a look of the monument of Alexander The Great in Thessaloniki's beach by Theofil Savvakis. This is an image of a typical December evening.

Shooting views in this city. The Sun is always at 4500-5900K for 8 hours. Different architect. Different buildings. Different moods. Fog & sun. Rainy & sunny.
Thessaloniki was the favorite place for the great director Theodoros Angelopoulos!
