Very big church with historic importance. It's located 10 minutes walk from Aristotelous square. In the basement, there are the catacombs of St. Demetrios.

This is one Byzantine chorch well worth the visit. At walkind distance from the center, try to visit when there is Sunday service ( beautiful) and the catacombs are open to visitors.
