  • In view of the Church of Saint Nicholas orphanos got the feeling that you are in a village of forgetting that surf in Thessaloniki. The old Byzantine Church of the monastery and UNESCO World Heritage site, built in the early 14th century, on the northeast corner of the old city, intramuros, between Herodotus and Paul literally steals the limelight!!. The name of the temple, Orphaned or orphans, identical with the unknown owner of monument that belonged to the family of orphans or orphanage at the site of the monastery, either attributed to St. Nicholas as patron of widows and orphans. H monastery continued to function throughout the Ottoman. The particularly rich decoration of Phaistos came to light in 1957-1960, during work on the monument, and is one of the most representative samples of paintings of Palaiologan Renaissance. Is an infamous Memorial of memory!!

  • If you are visiting Thessaloniki do not miss visiting this small but precious Church situated at the beginning of the old town. The small building tucked away in a beautiful garden – that is hosting a colony of turtles that roam free – is home to some of the finest Byzantine frescoes, some of which are very well preserved and clearly legible. Take some time to admire them calmly and try to figure out which passages of the Bible shows, you will be definitely paid off.

  • The Church of Saint Nicholas orphanos is old Byzantine Catholic monastery in Thessaloniki and a world heritage site, built in the early 14th century. Located at the northeast corner of the old town, inside the walls, between the streets and Irodotou Street Apostolou Pavlou. The name of the temple, Orphaned or orphans, meets for the first time in sources of 17th and 18th century and coincides with the unknown owner of monument that belonged to the family of orphans or in operation at the site of the monastery orphanage, whether attributed to St. Nicholas as patron of widows and orphans. As the founder of the temple has been suggested by researchers the Nikon Skoyterios Kapandritis Orfanos, as well as the right of Serbia, Milutin that due to his marriage with the Princess Simwnida had close ties with Thessaloniki. The kiss of Judas in its current form, the Church is a single-Aisled Basilica with Portico on three sides, roofed with gable roof on the main space. From the murals, the erection of the monument is placed in the context of the Decade 1310-1320. H Abbey continued to operate during the Ottoman occupation. The particularly rich decoration toichografikos came to light in 1957-1960, during work on the monument, and is one of the most representative samples of painting the Palaiologan Renaissance. Worth the visit.
