Saint Demetrios was the patron saint of Thessaloniki. This lovely church has been erected in his memory and honor in the lovely Greek city. The old and charming building is definitely worth a see and perhaps one of the prettiest historic sites in the city.
The architecture of the church belongs to the Byzantine era and this shows in its stoic and imposing building and the lovely windows. The interiors are beautiful and look especially striking when they are lit up by light flooding in through the tall windows. There is also a rather spooky underground crypt that can be explored. The church is a lovely representation of the Byzantine era. You should also take a guide to the place to know more about the fascinating stories about its construction.

The churches in Europe are pretty much all beautiful. This one is no different. It has a nice courtyard outside where we sat on a low wall to eat our lunch in the shade. Inside is cool and quiet and big. You're allowed to take pictures! We wandered around looking at all the beautiful decorations. They do have a bathroom but I decided to go down the street to use one at a restaurant that was nicer.
Beautiful historic building but they take advantage of people's faith way too much. The have money donation spots all over this place. Its sad. And there are beggars all around it and no police at all.
A devine atmosphere. You can feel the spirit of St. Demetrios, the patron protector of Salonika. May he pray for the redemption of our sinful souls.
A must see place in Salonia, be religious or not. It reflect on the soul of both greece, salonika and macedonian region over all. To trully learn about the Thesaloniki you gotta visit the hurch. Its beautiful. Atmosphere is calm and almost silent just enough. The courteyard is big and good for anything basicly. People are negative about the beggars, but it seems those individuals did not see more then 2 churches because that is sadly normal. If you have spare give it, it will return double. As for church one of the greatest monumrnts of orthodox art and arhitecture . I am impressed everytime i go to see it.
A great visit. Specially the place underground.
