  • We navigated to the church by foot and had no difficulty finding the place using google maps. If you come by car I can imagine it could be a bit of a challenge - one option could be to park near the V...  more »
  • Descending from the upper part of the city and along the narrow streets of the old town (now fully renovated) miraculously escaped the fire of 1917, this small church (formerly the chapel of the monastery of Latomi). Worth a quick visit.

  • It is a must see for the fresco. If you are lucky a nice man will be there to tell you everything you need to know about the place. It's really lovely!  more »

  • Hard to find, very small, but a very moving historic church. There was a person there explaining the contents of the church which turned it into a powerful experience.
  • This was my favourite place in Thessaloniki when I visited for 2 days. I know some people might think it's a bit strange to like such a small place, but this tiny old church exuded such peace... it was infectious... and so, so quiet.... I was on a bit of a high afterwards. This is one of my favourite feelings in life. I've only had it a handful of times. A couple of times in temples in Thailand and a couple of times in nature. There is a nice view from this place looking out over Thessaloniki also, and the walk up is through some very pretty old streets. Altogether a must-visit hidden gem for the soul!
  • Built by a woman, also known as the Latomos Monastery, this is one of the oldest churches in the city. Fantastic frescoes, with a very rare depiction of Jesus without a beard. Open on special occasions.
  • Beautiful mosaic, nice little monastery.
  • The mosaic is an awesome piece of art. But no photos allowed
