About this spot
The Heptapyrgion also popularly known by its Ottoman Turkish name Yedi Kule is a Byzantine and Ottoman-era fortress situated on the north-eastern corner of the Acropolis of Thessaloniki in Greece. Evidence suggests that the fortress was built in 379-395 BC. The outside walls were built in the 12th century. During the 1890s, the fortress was converted into a prison which functioned until 1989, when it was moved outside the city.
