The cathedral sits in a plaza surrounded by pedestrian streets with shops and restaurants. The evening we visited, the plaza was filled with families enjoying a pleasant evening. Beautiful church.

We were touring the city, and a huge storm suddenly came on. We took shelter in the veranda of the church. We did go in & light candles, and the architecture is beautiful. A must see in Volos.

The walls are covered in frescoes and although it's not an ancient church it is certainly impressive. You can sit quietly and watch the faithful making their prayers and soak up the atmosphere, while admiring the paintings that cover every surface. Some impressive icons too
