What I can see

The refugee shacks of 1922 and the abandoned villas of that time have today given way to newer apartment buildings, with the result that the landscape has changed dramatically. The pollution of Thermaic Gulf does not make Agia Triada and the surrounding settlements ideal for swimming, the view of Thessaloniki however is impressive and one can enjoy a coffee or a meal next to the sea, as if being on an island.

What I can't see

Agia Triada was a small village, where refugees from Asia Minor had settled. From the interwar period until the 1970s, boats full of Thessalonian bathers arrived to the dock of Agia Triada from the White Tower. Apart from a beach for Thessalonians, during those decades, it was also a place of entertainment, with beach parties, summer cinemas and fish taverns.
