Sunset from the Eptapyrgio Castle | Thessaloniki, Greece

,

My intention was to catch the sunset over Rotunda in Thessaloniki but it was already late when we arrived there. I tried to find a suitable place for the composition in my mind, sadly, without success.

Then I realized that capturing both the setting sun and the Rotunda in Thessaloniki is a mission possible only from the blocks of flats around us. Since we didn’t know anyone, ready to offer their balcony for a photo shooting, we started thinking of plan B.

At that moment, we noticed the Eptapyrgio Castle in the distance. With the sun setting fast, we ran desperately up the steep stairs of the hill, loaded with my heavy equipment.

Luckily, we arrived there at the right moment when the sun was quietly sinking behind the horizon.

 

Eptapyrgio Castle and Rotunda in Thessaloniki

Dating back to the Antiquity, Eptapyrgio or “Fortress of Seven Towers” is a construction from the Byzantine and Ottoman eras with actually ten towers. As for the Rotunda, also known as Agios Georgios, it’s worth noting that this is the oldest monument in Thessaloniki, Greece, built by the Roman emperor Galerius in the 4th century.

Get it On Your Wall

My goal is always to create the best possible and most exciting photos to do justice to the places where they’ve been taken.

 

Maybe this place evokes some good memory for you?

Or it's a place which you always dreamed to be one day?

 

I wish a high quality print of my photo will bring you a feeling of being there at any time!
