Church of Saint Nikolaos Orphanos

Church of Saint Nikolaos Orphanos

A small treasure of religious art is hidden at the Church of Aghios Nikolaos Orphanos, which was constructed in the early 14th century as the catholicon of a byzantine monastery, with brilliant internal decorations, which are among the most well preserved painted sets of Thessaloniki. Wonderful samples of Paleologan art are displayed, such as scenes of the functional circle, the Passion and Miracles of Christ, various saints and the life of Aghios Nikolaos. The church garden is an oasis of peace and tranquility from the city’s noise.
