White Tower or Lefkos Pyrgos for us the Greeks is one of the landmarks of Thessaloniki that is no longer so white obviously but still dominates a part of the waterfront of the city and is one of those must see places when you are in the area.
It is a monument and a museum that once was part of the fortification constructed to protect that part of the city. It has a long history and has been used for different purposes over the centuries.
Today is open to the public so do make sure to visit the museum that is housed in the tower and get to know more about the city from all the exhibits around!
