Recently visited the church of Agios Dimitrios ( St. Dimitry) It is a majestically built church with the Holy remains of three saints. The visit was a blessed experience.

Went today again. Not the first time, but went cause I like this church.
As I said in another review it is recommended that you read some history of the place before ypu actually make the visit.
Inside you can pray at Saint Dimitrios and put some candles for the people you are praying.
If you like history you may like the six mosaic panels, which still exist before the 8th century.
Under the church there are some catacombs, which were in the beginning some roman bath. Later in the name of Saint Dimitrios it was made the first church in the beginning of the 4th century.
The first small church was pater replaced by a bigger one. The church was destroyed and rebuilt more times because of the historical condition. Anyway you can learn its history by simply visiting it.
If you visit for the church for its history of for religious reasons, I believe you'll enjoy the place.
