When buildings speak: Ypsilon and Bensousan Han

No one can pass by Thessaloniki without hearing about the Great Fire that destroyed the city back in 1917. Living here for a while, it has become more and more interesting for me to discover those parts of the city that have escaped that destruction. It is also interesting to see how they have been changing their purpose throughout the years. We visited Ypsilon and Bensousan Han.

#Open House Thessaloniki 2017

For this event, that took place on the 25th and 26th of November, 98 buildings opened their doors to the people, showing them other parts of the city full of interesting stories. It guided us from places under the ground, untill the highest points of Thessaloniki – Catacombs or Castles -, giving us another point of view and allowing us to understand the beauty and the real size of this northen Greek city. What is better than a nice walk full of interesting information, helping us to enjoy our trip?
