Saint Sofia 


Saint Sofia

The temple of Saint Sofia in Thessaloniki is found southern the road Egnatia to the sea, in small distance from the temple of Aheiropoiytos. This, with the temples of Thessalonica Saint Dimitrios and Aheiropoiytos constitute the most important oldchristian monuments of Greece and of the entire Orthodoxy. The rythm of the building can be named: "royal with dome". Saint Sofia was built in honour of Christ, just like Saint Sofia in Istamboul, with which they have many characteristics in common.
