There are plenty of attractive old buildings to be found in Thessaloniki, but the unfortunate aspect is that some of them are very poorly maintained. An example is this ancient mosque which doesn't seem to be open to the public at all. Still looks good...More

A most marvellous exhibition, you have to absorb the photos I will post or visit to get an idea of how amazingly this exhibition has been put together. Stunningly evocative images of the Greek sea and it's memories, and a beautiful silk printed centrepiece.Thoroughly recommended.

I love that the exterior is nothing special and that you can walk right by without noticing it. It keeps this jewel box secret and sacred. The 15th C mosque and house of charity is beautifully intact, and has elaborate trompe l'oeil frescoes and domes...More
