The walls of Thessaloniki 


The walls of Thessaloniki

The walls of Thessaloniki shaped a rectangle with two vertical to the sea sides and two parallel. They had height, on average, 10-12 m. and 8 about kilometres expansion. The two walls aimed to create lines of defence against the invaders, while outside them, for a big period, existed a ditch that was filled with marine water and had wooden bridges that were destroyed during the belligerent periods.
