The church is built on a Roman bath. Inside are the remains of Saint Dimitrios, the protector of the city. It is a must see church.

The church is named after the patron saint of Thessaloniki, Saint Dimitris. It is full of history and there are well-preserved catacombs under the church that are accessible to the public. The church operates as a normal church, so visitors should be respectfully dressed. This is one of the must-see sights in Thessaloniki.
