After visiting churches in Meteor area, with all the knowledge we had... suddenly ... this one is different. Definitely worthy visiting!

Historically it's great. It's very pretentious though. It's run more like a business than a place of worship. In the church they are selling various products and in its basement they are selling services. It's free to visit so certainly worth it.

The church is beautiful, with a combination of architectural styles, great icon painting and even remnants of three saints (St. Demetrius included). The air is cool and the atmosphere is solemn. You will find peace here, outside of a busy maritime city.

Nice place for orthodox. We were with guide and was very interesting to hear the history of this building. Inside the church there is martyr's holy relics, candles, shops with icons and other orthodox´s things.

Visit St Dimitrius Church and also its kryp, located in the underground. During the Turkish occupaction, the children would go there at night to study religion, Greek and keep their language em culture

Visited as part of the hop on / hop off sight seeing of the city. I was mostly impressed by the "museum" in the underground crypt.
