We have visited as a group and it was accompanied by a local tour guide, therefore it was very interesting to hear about the history and the importancy of the place

Agios Dimitrios was rebuilt after the big fire of 1917 and it shows. All the brickwork in the upper part is visibly new and takes away the charm that must have been there in the past. The inside is vast and luminous, but it was...More

A beautiful Greek Orthodox church with traditional styles as well as a taste of the past in the way the walls inside have been left intact throughout history. It also houses the relics of three saints, which is a blessing.

Away from the historical significance, noted in every entry about this site, the church offers a unique experience. If the great fire had not occurred, this would be the second Aya Sophia, given the Ottoman occupation. However, seeing the preserved Roman bath under the church...More
