This is a very pleasant Byzantine church to visit. It is larger than most though has less decoration and icons than many I have seen. Worth a visit if you are in that part of Thessaloniki.

Ayios Dimitrios is the patron saint of Thessaloniki and this is a very large church built in the Byzantine era with an underground crypt with ancient ruins. The church was built on the site where Saint Dimirtrios was martyed.

Inside has of course been restored, especially the roof/ceiling wooden rafters. However, it is spectacular to sit and look at all around.

Definitely worth a visit. The crypt was brilliant only downfall was that it was only in Greek. But plenty of info on the internet about the church and crypt.

A great church/monument. Don't miss the catacombs. You feel the God inside the church. You should visit.
