Walked down the road from the Rotonda and suddenly we saw the Arch. It definitely worths a visit. The relief is so beautiful. We stayed a long time studying the details and making the pictures. Could sit there and make sketches for hours.

If you're a tourist in Thessaloniki, you're going to head to the Rotonda and will end up walking by the Arch of Galerius...at least, 99% will. It is a nice piece of Roman history, made special by the quality of the bas-relief sculpture still in place. Read up on the history before you see it to understand why it matters.

Probably once upon a time it was a magnificent building, but nowadays very few bricks and marbles remained.
However, it merits a visit and a calm look at the histories on the marbles on the side of the arch.

During the crisis of the 3rd Century, Thessaloniki was the capital of the part controled by Galerius. Its huge scale gives a good idea of the importance of this town, both for the Roman Empire and for the Balkans itself. The bas-relief are a delight to watch, very well kept.

The "Kamara" monument for the locals, is a n international landmark whith a nice square around it, where you can sit and enjoy your coffee while viewing the famous monument.
