  • The steep rocky road along the close residential buildings are accessible and come to the only surviving ancient building the monastery "Latomu". If you look at the building from the outside, "Temple" is loudly said, but inside you will see a stunning mosaic murals on the walls and the unique frescoes, among them "Jesus surrounded by 4-x Evangelists" (they are depicted in the form of animals), "Bathing Christ" (where Jesus still beardless). We were told that this indescribable beauty was for old plaster to 1921 years within a few centuries of Turkish rule. Now the Orthodox Church operating. I think such a place in Thessaloniki to visit!

  • Might be difficult to find but worth visiting. Mystical atmosphere, impressive murals, nice view. Picturesque alleys around.
  • 教堂人不多,但是参观是免费的,很安静进去后能让人能忘掉一切的烦恼
  • 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.
