How interesting it is for new world visitors to see centuries-old monuments in the middle of a bustling city, let alone more or less in the middle of the street. These monuments are but a short walk along a grassy pathway from the Rotunda, which...More

There are several of these monuments in the city. One is the Rotunda, a beautiful building used variously as a temple, a Christian church, a Mosque and then a church again, and now a museum. The Arch of the Emperor galerius, on Egnatias street, is...More

This arch is certainly worth going to and further up the road the Rotunda externally as well as inside is better again.

No reason to try to view this year. Told scaffolding is to be only thing to view until February 2018

The walled city and its monuments can reasonably be called an open Byzantine Museum. All city monuments, Byzantine, Post-Byzantine and Ottoman – have been declared as historical landmark monuments. Fifteen of the Early Christian-Byzantine monuments were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988....More
