Rotonda of Galerious, UNESCO World Heritage

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

H Ροτόντα είναι κτίσμα το οποίο προοριζόταν για μαυσωλείο του Γαλέριου. Λόγω της μη χρήσης του αργότερα μετατράπηκε σε χριστιανικό ναό του Αγίου Γεωργίου και συμπεριλήφθηκε στα Παλαιοχριστιανικά και Βυζαντινά μνημεία της Θεσσαλονίκης ως Μνημείο Παγκόσμιας Πολιτιστικής Κληρονομιάς της ΟΥΝΕΣΚΟ. Κτίστηκε στα χρόνια του Καίσαρα Γαλέριου γύρω στο 304 μ.Χ.

Rotunda is a building which was destined for the mausoleum of Galerius. Non-use of later converted into a Christian church of St. George and was included in early Christian and Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built during the reign of Caesar Galerius around 304 AD.
