Old Town in Thessaloniki: The Old Town (or else Ano Poli, or Upper Town) of Thessaloniki is located on the north of the modern town. This was the former Ottoman quarter, where a large community of Jews also lived. The Old Town of Thessaloniki has paved streets and stone houses. There, you will find many Byzantine churches and monasteries. The only active monastery out of the 20 that this quarter has is the Monastery of Vlatadon.
In the Old Town, you will also find the house of Kemal Attaturk, the famous Turkish leader. Kemal was born and raised in this house at the end of the 19th century, when the town was still under Ottoman rule. Today, this house hosts the Turkish Consulate and part of it works as a museum. A large part of the Old Town, mostly the Jewish Quarter, was destroyed in a fire in 1917, which burnt the city in two days.
