  • This church is very close to the Rotunda and is on the way up to the Ano Poli. It was 1st of January ad it was closed. Looks old from outside.  more »
  • It is one of the fifteen medieval monuments of Thessaloniki Pau joined to the list of UNESCO as world heritage monuments. Not unfairly. So long pass outside the Church and I didn't bother to go inside. Mega wrong! It is a beautiful Byzantine Church of the 13th century, with very beautiful and manicured courtyard. Located in the city center, a few meters away from the Arch. I think it is worth the epikeftei kaneis. When I went I was a very polite Lady (probably was guardian of the Church) which I solved some questions about the Church.

  • It is one of the churches of the world heritage site of Thessaloniki. Is a church located near the Rotonda, far less, but look interesting in world heritage churches like best. Beside the entrance to old wells? Are left. Mansion becomes background, view from municipak Street Graffiti Wall is a little disappointing.

  • Really nice and small Orthodox Church in the center of Thessaloniki with a small beautiful yard surrounding it. In this yard there is a beautiful small well with lots of flowers on it. If you are visiting the area it worth to go and check it. Entrance it's free and the interior decoration is really nice.
  • Right where Arrianou and Iasonidou streets are met, and really close to the Arch of Galerius and the Rotonda church, there stands the Church of Agios Panteleimon. The naming of the church is generally new, depending on the churche’s age. It has its origins deep in the byzantian history of the Theotokou Perivleptou church (aka Isaac’s church) named after its founder, archbishop Jacob (1295-1314), later to be monk Isaac. This church was a spiritual center during the 14th century and was a key point of reference of the writing and teaching activities of the great non-Greeks Thomas Magistros and Matthew Blastaris. Agios Panteleimon church belongs to a characteristic architectonic specimen of the Palaiologian renaissance in Thessaloniki. This type of churches was spread through the city with more than one domes and two tunnels leading to little side chapels to be preferable for that time period. The wall painting are dated to the late 13th century to the start of the 14th one, and several of them still exist today in good condition. The most iconic being the picturing of Saint Jacob the Adelfotheon, who shares the same name as the archbishop and founder of the temple. In the middle of the 16th century (1568-1571) the church was converted to a mosque by the name of “Isaacie Mosque” (meaning= Isaac’s mosque). All the wall paintings and the front of the church are calcined and a minaret is built, of which the base is still saved till today, and a marble fountain is also built out in the curtilage. After the great earthquake of the 1978, many restorations took place in the church and it reached the state it has till today.
  • very beautiful church with beautiful garden, pleased to see this place. definitely must see place ❤
  • Nothing interesting
  • If you are visiting the area of the Arch of Galerius, used to visit this beautiful church. You caught nearby and also is surrounded by a beautiful park.
