Very enchanting and colorful church. I was very intrigued by the Orthodox mess and many little candles, which made me return a few times to appreciate

Seems like the Ottomans plastered the walls and turned it into a mosque, but after they got kicked out and the plaster removed, an amazing collection of mosaics were found and intact.

A fire in 1917 damaged great part of them but the 8th century ones have survived.

The church was named after the city's patron Ayios Demetrios.
