So small and if you were to not walk onto the square it's possible you might miss it hidden down the side of the cathedral.

Seemingly there are small churches everywhere. This is another example. You really cant miss it. It was nice but definitely not a must see.

This little church is a real beauty, easily missed if you are not looking for it. It is the "Little Metropolis" church, the big one being the Metropolitan Church next to it. It is full of history and worth a look.

You will never tire of the beauty and majesty of the beautiful Greek Orthodox Byzantine style of the the churches, the icons and architecture. Large or small they envelope you in peace and tranquility that you can only experience in Greek Churches. Outstanding!
