Nice church with some impressive architecture. The remains of saints are present and many locals are seen praying to them. Worth a look.

This is the church of the patron saint of the city. It's the biggest church in Thessaloniki and surely one of the most impressive.

The church itself was beautiful. Our visit to the Crypt with it's many exhibits was what really made our visit to this church special. The Crypt was part of a huge tunnel system during the Roman occupation.

1. The catacombs are wondrous (shorter hours than the church)- mysterious, peaceful, sacred. 2. The columns and their capitals are borrowed from previous structures- you'll notice a lively, organic rhythm. The bases compensate for the differences in height. 3. Beautiful mosaics. St. Dimitrios Church is a site of pilgrimage and therefore is open, and crowded, and joyous, throughout the day... More
