The large impressive church of St. Dimitrios is not only a religious place but also has a huge history. It is of great importance to the people of Thessalonki as St. Dimitrios is the protecter of the city. With the remains of the Saint and the underground crypt, it is worth seeing.

Beautiful church. It's worth seeing because of its history. Also need to visit the crypt so is better to visit before 2 that it closes.

Very nice church with tons of history but unfortunately we were too late to visit the crypt; it closes at 2.

This is a very pleasant Byzantine church to visit. It is larger than most though has less decoration and icons than many I have seen. Worth a visit if you are in that part of Thessaloniki.

Ayios Dimitrios is the patron saint of Thessaloniki and this is a very large church built in the Byzantine era with an underground crypt with ancient ruins. The church was built on the site where Saint Dimirtrios was martyed.

We went 3 times inside this church. The chanting was sublime and the festivities in Easter very impressive The church inside has extraordinary features in regard with all columns which are different with roman provenience.

Inside has of course been restored, especially the roof/ceiling wooden rafters. However, it is spectacular to sit and look at all around.

Definitely worth a visit. The crypt was brilliant only downfall was that it was only in Greek. But plenty of info on the internet about the church and crypt.

One of the churches to see in Thessaloniki if you are the type. Together with the church of Asia Sofia are the most impressive churches in the city
