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.

A beautiful Greek Orthodox church with traditional styles as well as a taste of the past in the way the walls inside have been left intact throughout history. It also houses the relics of three saints, which is a blessing.
