“Impressive building”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Should be in a better state. Time for an upgrade but this church/mosque/Roman temple was extremely impressive.

Reviewed 27 October 2013

Interesting to see the interior of this building even if there are few of the original mosaics still in place.

“If you want an example of historical multi-function of a building”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Reading the history of the building is impressive. With some imagination you can place yourself to different centuries and find related architectual and ornamentation parts while you are visiting.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

In Sept. 2013 the inside walls of the Rotonda are scaffolded, because of restoration of the mosaics around the dome. Still, you get a sense of how the much damaged building would have looked in it's former glory. Take some time to walk around the building as well. Some of the arrangement of found artifacts is quite charming.

“A ROMAN BUILDING THAT BECAME CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND THEN MOSLEM TEMPLE”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Is wonderful and impressive but still needs more renovation. Located at the historic centre of Thessaloniki, next to Triumphal Arch of Galerius which is beautiful as well, and in a walking distance from Saint Demetrios church and Lefkos ikos by the seaside promanade.Worthewhile to visit with free entrance.
