Monuments of Ano City

The region of Ano City in Thessalonica that was rescued from the fire in 1917 is found in the most northern and tallest department of the old city. It is almost certain that in the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine season it was not dwelled, at least not systematically. Neighborhoods with residences were created during the Ottoman domination, so that the region could get densely populated in the last years of the 19th century, as the climatic conditions that prevail (microclimate) and the splendid view that the place offers, were appreciated. The buildings that have been rescued up to today, obviously reveal the spirit and the character of that period and they prove, with their building technique, the experience of the Greek technicians that manufactured them.
