Overview

HISTORICAL & CULTURAL TOUR OF THESSALONIKI
The Upper Town is the most traditional part of the city, as it preserves the Ottoman-era city fabric, otherwise destroyed in the great fire of 1917. Thus it features small stone-paved streets, old squares and houses in traditional Greek and Ottoman architecture. The Upper Town is the highest part of the city, and dominated by the acropolis, the Byzantine and Ottoman-era fort known as Heptapyrgion. The remaining city walls still ring the Upper Town, with many of its additional Ottoman and Byzantine structures still standing. During the Ottoman period it was the main district of the Turks of the city, while the Greeks and the Jews were living around the port.
