    In a residential area in last-minute site is built, is one of the churches of the world heritage site of Thessaloniki. Grounds for taking panoramic view quite difficult. As the building height without too much, like the architecture of this period, semicircle of bricks and other repetitive motifs is interesting.

    This four-column and cruciform church with a Colonnade on the Eastern, southern and Northern sides, the eastern side of the temple is completed two symmetrical chapels. Construction lasted from the 13th century until the first half of the 14th century. In the center of the Temple stands a semiugol'nyj Dome, four smaller domes are located below the central dome, rising on the corners of the temple. An important attribute of the temple is a coating of ceramic tiles of walls. The exterior walls of the temple are two-and three-summary of niche, brick columns, ornaments, which in combination with the domes while hiding the volume and solidity, give lightness and finesse around the temple. The Interior of the Temple of St. Catherine make up the few fragments of frescoes, dating back to the year 1315 and izoobrazhajut communion of the Apostles, prophets and Angels image, scenes performed miracles of Jesus Christ and other Saints. According to the research and based on some of the elements of ikonografiki, it is believed that the temple was built and dedicated to Jesus Christ; also there is a perception that was originally the monastery of Christ Pandodinamu. During the years of Turkish occupation during the reign of Bajazida II (1481-1512g) the Church was converted into a mosque and renamed Jakub Pasha Mosque. As a result, was forgotten, the original name of the Church. With the return of Christian worship, the temple was rebuilt, but this time not known the reason for initiation of Saint Catherine
