Full of life at all hours of the day, the Athonos square in the city center, is a place loved not only by Thessalonians but also by tourists. Here food and nutrition comes first. In the shops you will find all kinds of spices, teas, nuts, vegetables and fruits, fish, cheeses and small boutiques with clothes, handmade accessories and decorative objects. Apart though from what you will shop, your attention will be certainly distracted ... by the smells of plummy delicacies of the traditional taverns of the Square! You can enjoy them midday and evening, some days actually with live Greek music. But if you want to experience the old face of Athonos Square, head down from the market food where you will find picturesque shops with handmade wicker wooden objects and small furniture, made from the few anymore of the kind artisans.
