It reveals the history of the years passed and the crypt is of great importance. It is a place with religion and architecture meaning. The remainings of the old church and the changes it has been through are so well presented

Huge Byzantine church (restored) in the city center of Thessaloniki. Impressive interior features a soaring interior with beautiful wood beam ceiling. The basement crypt is home to a museum containing numerous relics uncovered during the most recent restoration. Fascinating.

This is one if the best (if not the best) churches in Thessaloniki. So much to explore. Underground you can find the museum with a lot of history of S. Demetrios. Definitely a must see, in Thessaloniki.

It's a very old church with history coming from the byzantine and Roman Era but not much and being a bit far from the rest tourist places its not something I would recommend visiting if you are just for a few days in the city.
