Virgin Mary of Chalkeon 


Virgin Mary of Chalkeon

The temple of Virgin Mary of Chalkeon is found in the centre of the old city of Thessaloniki, in the south-western of the Ancient Market and northern the road Egnatia. It is built in form of a cross, with a dome that is supported in the crossing of the vertical arches, with a tall drum. From these basic characteristics the temple of Virgin Mary of Chalkeon can be considered as a representative of the "Architectural School of Istamboul" and ancestor of the "Macedonian School".
