Here you will have the opportunity to visit the Metropolis, where Constantine Palaiologos was crowned emperor on March 12, 1449, the temple of Odegetria, whose frescoes date from 1312, the monastery of Pantanassa, whose decoration is inspired by Gothic art, and the Perivlepto, with its impressive frescoes.

A museum with important Byzantine exhibits has been organized and operates north of the Metropolitan church of Agios Dimitrios. The collection includes sculptures, manuscripts, jewelry, accessories, clothing and footwear, as well as the most important pieces of silk clothing due to their rarity and the princess braid from a tomb in the north portico of Hagia Sophia.
