One of the oldest churches in Thessaloniki, really worth a visit. You can have a calm stroll, admire the old frescos, see the tomb of saints and climb down to the hidden catacombs, without any admission price. Don't forget to visit it!

Nice large church, worth visiting. It is found at the age of the old town. A small square in front of the church. The most important feature of this church is the crypt.

When we entered the church we just felt awe. It is just extraordinary. Church icons of St. Demetres are made of silver and gold. Maybe one of the most beautiful churches I have ever visited. There are 2 shops inside the church and there are...More
