This is definitely a must see attraction in Thessaloniki. The monastery is located in the area of the old castle and offers an awesome view all over the town!

This is an ancient place. I could only get access to the church. It is worth a visit. Not many mosaics remain inside which is a terribly shame. I was very impressed with the peacocks outide. I should say that there would be more than 20! Such beautiful creatures! I found getting to this place to be confusing. Make sure... More

A lovely quiet place to visit and maybe just sit and contemplate. Inside is lovely and just right after the hustle of the city. Well worth a visit.
