Thessalonica on the Aegean

Thessalonica was located on the east-west Egnatian Way. The city was also located on the Bay of Thessalonica on the Aegean Sea. According to the records we have in the Book of Acts and Paul’s Epistles, Paul never used the sea port at Thessalonica.

The tower, called the White Tower, was built in the 15th century by the Venetians or the Turks. It is probably the best known landmark of the city today.
