Se stai guardando la Torre Bianca significa che hai fatto uno dei viaggi più affascinanti di sempre e sei nella città dalle mille promesse, Salonicco.
La vecchia torre fortificata è uno dei monumenti più importanti della città greca. La sua altezza di 30 metri divisa in sei piani e i 70 di perimetro sovrastano il porto.
La data esatta della sua costruzione è nascosta nella notte dei tempi. 
Inizialmente e per lungo tempo, venne attribuita ai Veneziani ma, molto probabilmente fu costruita durante il primo periodo ottomano, qualche tempo dopo il 1530. 
Quel che è certo è che questo imponente pezzo di architettura, intriso di storia, fu costruito sopra un preesistente edificio bizantino.È inestricabilmente legato alla storia di Salonicco. Le sue mura conservano i ricordi del corso burrascoso di questa grande città. Non ha mai smesso di giocare un ruolo importante. Una sentinella vigile che sorveglia la città preziosa di Salonicco per gli ottomani, poi uno straziante luogo di prigionia e di tortura per i condannati a morte o all'ergastolo, quando era conosciuta come la "Torre del Sangue".
Solo dopo la liberazione della città, la torre fu dipinta di bianco al fine di purificarla dal sangue e, anche se il bianco è ormai scomparso, la costruzione continua a conservare questo simbolico nome. 
Accoglie oggi il Museo di storia di Salonicco, poco fornito. Dalla cima si gode un panorama meraviglioso.  Dominando la costa, è diventato un punto di incontro e un buon posto per fare una passeggiata. 
La bella stagione è alle porte ed è il momento di cominciare a scoprire le gambe, ma con stile... ancora una volta regine incontrastate di eleganza sono le gonne plissè. 
La mia l'ho scelta in una delicata tinta pastello ed il perfetto alleato di uno stile comodo, ma assolutamente ricercato e sofisticato, anche in versione turista.
(Clicca qui e qui per vedere tutte le gonne a pieghe più belle di questa PE 2018).

The White Tower is perhaps the most recognizable spot in Thessaloniki.  
With its distinctive cylindrical shape, its six stories and its memory-charged history, it has become the city’s trademark. 
When one sets eyes on the White Tower, it means that one has made one of the most fascinating journeys and is in the city of a thousand promises.
The exact date of its construction is hidden in the mists of time. The initial suggestion that it was perhaps of Venetian construction, has not been accepted by archaeologists. Most likely it was built during the early Ottoman period, sometime after 1530. What is certain though is that this impressive piece of architecture was built on top of a pre-existing Byzantine building.
It is inextricably linked to the history of Thessaloniki. Its walls preserve the memories of the stormy course of this great city. It has never ceased to play an important role. A watchful sentry guarding over the precious city of Thessaloniki for the Ottomans, then a
prison and torture chamber for unconquerable spirits.
The story goes that the structure was known as the Tower of Blood until a prisoner painted the tower of white, in order to purify it from the blood, in exchange for his liberty in 1890 when it was renamed Lefkos Pyrgos (White Tower). And, although the white paint is now gone, the Tower continues to retain this symbolic name.
Today the tower is open to the public while the visitors will have a chance to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view from its highest level, and a very beautiful and informative museum inside the monument is dedicated to the city's history. 
The White Tower, apart from being a great architectural monument, is a reference point in Thessaloniki. Dominating the shore, it has become a meeting point and a good place for a walk.
The hot season is coming and it's time to start discovering our legs, but with style... once again the undisputed stars of elegance are pleated skirts.
I chose my lovely pleated skirt in a delicate pastel color, it's the perfect ally of a comfy style, but absolutely sophisticated, even in the tourist version.
