This church was build in VII century, unfortunately it was destroyed in a fire of 1912. Still you can see many parts of original walls as well as some frescoes.

The main church of the city visited by locals and visitors alike. The church is dedicated to Saint Demetris. On any visit to Thessaloniki this church is must see.

Nothing really special - a big Greek style Orthodox Christian church with the not so fancy interior and not so beautiful exterior. They say underground is more interesting, but I don't know that.

If you can go on Sunday morning you will feel the magic of the place. Do not hesitate to pray before the relics of St. Demetrius.

This is the patron saint and protector of Thessaloniki. It was built apparently in the 5th century and has 7th century frescoes and mosaics dating between the 5th and 9th centuries. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Monument.
