Thankfully well preserved in the heart of the city, surrounded by shops and cafes. Many of these old sites take you a little by surprise as you simply wander the streets.....just keep walking, around each corner there will be another amazing site & sight!

If you are in the area then the arch way is worth a look, mainly to be astounded by how it is still standing (old photos shows that trams used to run under this arch along the main street) but there is also some nice detailing. Other ruins are bettered in many, many other Greek towns so do not make... More

It is worth seeing if you happen to already be in the area, but I am not so sure it is worth a separate trip or getting out and spending much time here. We just took pictures as we drove by. While impressive in itself, it is rather small, compared to other ruins in Greece.

Fifteen of the Early Christian-Byzantine monuments were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988. Every neighbourhood of the City centre, features one of its Byzantine or Post-Byzantine monuments, remnants... More

The number of old Cristian, late Roman and early Byzantine monuments and churches in the city is amazing and they are spreaded from the sea to Ano Poli and from the west to the east. Besides the most popular ones like Rotunda, Arch of Galerius, church of st. Sophia, there are plenty of small churches like Osios David in upper... More

The building once had an interior of wooden timbers which merely inserted into the thick walls. Exterior was also maximized by this same method. Not all churches make progress every year.

This was interesting. Original wall that was bought by the emperor who built the rotunda. Just in the street and people walking past it. Interesting!

The details on the walls are impressive but it is only a small part that survices after so many centuries. A nice spot to take pictures.
