Thessaloniki. Macedonia. Greece. View of the Rotunda built in 306 AD originally as the cylindrical mausoleum for Emperor Galerius. However the Emperor did not end up being buried here and the building was converted in the Christian Church of Agios Georgios in the 5th century. It was later converted in a mosque by the Turks who place a minaret along it. These days it used as museum and it is one of several Paleochristian and Byzantine Monuments in Thessaloniki included as a Unesco World Heritage Site. Cosmopolitan Thessaloniki was founded in 315BC in the heart of Macedonia and is the 2nd largest city in Greece.
