A beautiful piece of history, art and architecture. A must see if you're visiting Tarpon Springs. Definitely bring a camera the inside is just as beautiful with all the art and stained glass. Right down the road from the bayou where you can see manatees and dolphins.

This is not the largest Cathedral I have ever visited and it is not the most beautiful or elegantly appointed although it is beautiful inside and out. But the locals claim the reason that Tarpon Springs has not be hit by a hurricane is because of the presence of the Cathedral. I am not Greek Orthodox but I certainly would... More

This Greek Cathedral should be a stop you make when in Tarpon Spring. It is a very moving experience. You can feel the hand of god here. Don't past it up. Its a moving experience.

This Church is amazing. The icons, the murals and the glass windows. It is a spiritual place. You can find peace here among the chaotic thrall of the nearby Sponge Docks. It is a national treasure. It has to be seen to know it's true beauty.

We visited Tarpon Springs Florida the other day with the intention of eating an Authentic Greek Meal. Friends had recommended the restaurant "Mykonos" and the sponge docks too. I always check out an area I'm going to visit for any "not to miss" interesting things. St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church caught my attention. From the outside you can see the... More

I loved this unusual Greek Orthodox Church which you will see as you drive towards the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs. The brick-built exterior has a traditional dome and a tall tower. In the forecourt there is a statue of a boy diving for the cross (a local tradition held in Tarpon Springs each Epiphany). The church is said to... More

How lovely for this cathedral to be open to visitors to Tarpon Springs. We visited late in the afternoon and were greeted by an older Greek gentleman who encouraged us to walk freely throughout the cathedral. The middle aisle is roped off, but the rest of the church is very open to explore, and that is what we did. How... More
