  • Although smalller than St Sophia this is a prime example of Eastern Roman architecture and painting in the town and the whole of the Balkans. The frescoes inside are breathtakingly beautiful but photographs are strictly forbidden, I snapped a picture but the guy guarding the place made me delete it, probably wanted a bribe as I see plenty of pics from others here on google maps. This is a place not to be missed when in town regardless of your faith
  • This is an amazing church with very nice frescoes inside. The frescoes include images from the Passion and the Gospels, the life of the Virgin Mary, and the life of John the Baptist. Byzantine painters Michael and Eutychios signed their work at the church, making Holy Mother of God Peribleptos one of only four churches that preserves the signatures of these important artists.  Built in 1295, the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos is one of the oldest churches in the historic town.
