Get a glimpse of Catholicism in an Orthodox part of the world at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist.

  • Lovely little church that only holds mass during certain times of year. Great place to just sit, think and reflect.  more »
  • You will run into this cathedral whether you want to or not. It's not white so you will see it from far and then you just follow it. It's gorgeous and the surroundings peaceful.  more »
  • A lovely church, just right for a silent prayer. On the other side is the convent, you can go into the church but there is a curtain across the alter. Privacy for the nuns  more »

  • We were very lucky to visit here on Psalm Sunday,the service was in Greek but everyone was so welcoming.One of the highlights of our holiday.
  • Heard Easter vigil mass here and although it was in Greek, the priest and the parishioners were very warm and accomodating.
  • Lovely, beside a that it's unusual to find a catholic cathedral in Greece, most belong to our brothers oorthodox
  • 規模很大的教堂,有漂亮的彩繪玻璃,推薦必遊,
  • It is very nice.
