It's a very old church with history coming from the byzantine and Roman Era but not much and being a bit far from the rest tourist places its not something I would recommend visiting if you are just for a few days in the city.

This church is named after Saint Demetrios of Thessaloniki who is a Christian martyr of the early 4th century AD. locals use it as a pilgrimage site as his bones are in a shrine there. The roman baths below are also worth a visit.

We have heard of the Patron Saint of the city so came to pay tribute to him in this Church. What surprised us completely are the crypts! We didn't expect to find them under the Church. It was only after we returned to our hotel...More
