Saint Athanassios 


Saint Athanassios

The temple of Saint Athanassios is found northern and adjacent the road Egnatia and south-eastern the temple of Aheiropoiytos. This woodroofed temple is a newer building, that was constructed in 1818 above the foundations, of an older building. In any case, up to 1880 were saved in the courtyard of the temple ruins of an ancient building, that probably belonged to a previous temple. The ancient temple of Saint Athanassios in 1569, is dedicated with its entire fortune to the Monastery of Vlatadon. Relative documents exist in the files of the Abbey. This event created a line of litigations between Abbey Vlatadon and Metropolis of Thessaloniki, that kept for centuries without solution . The temple was maintained and repaired at the last period and today constitutes the temple of the region.
