White Tower of Thessaloniki closed after torrential rain

The White Tower (Lefkos Pyrgos) of Thessaloniki will be closed on Friday due to maintanance works after Thursday’s torrential rain flooded the monument’s entrance and trapped visitors inside the building, forcing the fire brigade to intervene to get them out.

The chief of the Byzantine Culture Museum Agathoniki Tsilipakou said that the works are in progress and it is not yet known if the monument will open on Saturday.
