About White Tower in Thessaloniki

A visit to the White Tower of Thessaloniki is a must when someone is on a trip to the city, because the tower is a symbol that represents the city, and any trip would be incomplete without visiting such a popular tourist destination. Located near the waterfront, the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece is a monument and a museum.  However, its history dates back to the 15th century.

The White Tower of Thessaloniki holds great importance in the Greek history. The unique position of the tower and its unique architecture are all because of a reason. The White Tower Thessaloniki Greece was used as a fort for the harbour defences, a garrison, and a prison. For those wondering when was the White Tower of Thessaloniki built, it was made in the 15th century to replace an older fortification of the 12th century.

The White Tower of Thessaloniki is an architectural marvel, which is in the form of a cylinder with a diameter of 23m, and height of 34m. The outer wall has a spiral ramp, while there is a central room which can be accessed from all the six floors of the building from the inside. The White Tower Thessaloniki is a historical building set and established against a modern backdrop. This is the main reason for it being so popular amongst the tourists that it has become a tourist attraction in the city.

As the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece served the purpose of a fortress, garrison and a prison, the building was earlier referred to as ‘Tower of Blood’ or ‘Red Tower’ due to a number of people being captured and kept here. The White Tower of Thessaloniki has seen a lot of deaths as compared to the other monuments and buildings in the city. However, in 1912 during the First Balkan War, the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece was whitewashed in order to make it free from its older name. It was after being whitewashed and totally cleaned that the White Tower of Thessaloniki became a symbol of the city, and started to represent Thessaloniki. Therefore, for the tower that stands right now in the city, one could say that the answer to- when was the White Tower of Thessaloniki built can be 1912 when it was renovated to become a famous tourist destination.

Recently, the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece is being used as a museum that showcases various eras and rules that used to exist in Greece. As it is known that Greece holds an important place in the history of World. Therefore all the monuments and places related to it are also very important in the World history. The White Tower of Thessaloniki has served as a fortress, Garrison and a prison, which means its value in the history of Greece and World is quite a lot.

Thus, it would be right to say that a visit to the city of Thessaloniki without a visit to the White Tower in Thessaloniki Greece would be incomplete.

      Our Greece tour was superb. We had a fantastic time in all three cities Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. Thanks to Mayuri for the timely response and helping us in coordinating the tour. She was available to help us even at odd times. The one problem we faced was with the hotel manager behaviour which was rude in mykonos and the facilities given by them was not upto 4 star. We had to wait for 4 hours to get the room. Otherwise the view from hotel was awesome. We had a wonderful stay in Athens and Santorini. Both were located at the prime location i.e accessible to local restaurants, bus stops and metro. Thanks to Duniya Safari and travel triangle for making this a memorable trip for us.

      I’ll start by summing it up: Everything of our trip to Greece was exceptional and beyond our expectations. Memorable Vacations (my travel agent) and Travel Triangle have made it extra memorable and special for us. Nisar and Krishna Sir from Memorable Vacations and Shilpa from TT, were extremely courteous and have taken extra care of all our requests and customisations. Nisar customised everything according to our wishes. He has taken care of everything from hotels to transfers to internal tours, etc. all while keeping our budget in mind. The hotels at all the places (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini) were very very good. The ones at Mykonos and Santorini were superlative in their location and view. The siteseeings and islands visits were all breathtaking with extremly eye catching views. Of course Greece is one of the most beautiful country of Europe so it tends to be little expensive. But if one can plan this trip 4-5 months in advance, then it can be booked at quite reasonable price. Food wise, Greece is a paradise for Non-Veg lovers. Greek Salad, Cakes & Bakes and Greek Yogurts are out of the world. Overall this trip was totally satisfying for us in all sense. In the entire trip we have not faced with any unpleasant experience. I’ll like to recommend Memorable Vactions (particularly Nisar

      We booked our holiday package for Greece for earlier this month. Mr. Rohit Thakur was the one we coordinated with before trip, he helped us understand all the minorities of Greece as a destination which helped us a great deal to customise our trip based on our preferences. & it was Yeeshu Dhiman who assisted us through out the entire trip. Even answering our calls at awkward hours to get us out of a jam whenever required. The entire experience as a whole was so pleasant that I can't wait to get my next trip sorted through Hub Holiday. & I would love to recommend these two and Hub Holiday for any of my or my friends' or families' holiday plans.
