  • I want to distinguish monastery Latomu)) I was lucky once again, really wanted to get into the temple, to see the ancient mosaic. In the Monday was a day off)) But in the temple was a servant and allowed to pass. You cannot take pictures inside. But you can put candles and slowly all to consider. In the afternoon, when the Sun tends to decline, particularly good mosaic, it plays on muted sunlight falling through the stained glass. You can sit on a Chair and feel appeasement soul))

  • Might be difficult to find but worth visiting. Mystical atmosphere, impressive murals, nice view. Picturesque alleys around.

  • One of the most charming and mysterious churches Athens, preserved in the mosaic style refer to the representations made in raweńskich churches. Once this place was the Temple of the monastery Latomu, then the Church was converted into a mosque, it is now a small church lost in the maze of streets of the upper town. Find it is quite difficult, however, is what lies in itself is able to reward the effort made. The history of this object more broadly is described in the book of Thessaloniki during the early Byzantine (IV-VI century).

  • The most beautiful and picturesque Temple of Thessaloniki, with a lovely courtyard full of flowers and views across Thessaloniki. Inside the Church is the only early Christian mosaic depicting Christ as a teenager ageneio and rumored from there began their underground burrows that link all over the city. Interesting ...

  • Temple that is not easy to discover. Unpretentious and with a great mosaic chime. Manicured courtyard and great views over the city.
