Built in the late 13th century as the catholicon of Panagia Perivleptou Monastery, also known as Mr. Isaac’s Monastery named by its founder, Jacob, the bishop of Thessaloniki, thereafter monk Isaac. It belongs to the type of composite cruciform with a dome and ambulatory, while two chapels are formed at the eastern end of the side porticos.
