Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
The city's main plaza, Aristotelous Square is well known for the important political speeches and rallies that took place on-site over the years. The plaza was constructed in 1918 following the destruction of much of Thessaloniki during the Great Fire of 1917. However, when you visit, many of the buildings you'll see are from the 1950s. Head to the bustling square to get a coffee from one of the many cafes and people-watch, or watch one of the cultural events that take place here often. Check online to see if any special festivals or markets line up with your schedule. Put Aristotelous Square at the forefront of your travel plans using our Thessaloniki online trip itinerary builder.

  • It's a nice place to discover and there are a lot of good restaurants there! You can play with pigeons because there are loads of them, and you can take a walk and smell all the different kinds of food! It's a joyful place to be in!😁😊
  • The most central Square in Thessaloniki. Looks nice during the day. But with the sunset it changes completely and become the meeting point for the crowds of tourists. Noisy, joyful and colourful. One of the most famous places in the town.
