Ancient Edessa

Our next stop was the ruins of the ancient city of Edessa, located just below the modern city, about 90 minutes west of Thessaloniki. For more info, click here.

The ancient city seems to have been well fortified, with a thick double wall. In the top photo, we are standing just outside the main entrance to the old city.

The middle photo is taken from inside the ruins, looking over a hill to the top of a modern church.

The bottom photo is along the ancient walls of the city.
