Its reconstruction was finally completed in 1914 thanks to the architectural designs of Ernst Ziller and the modifications of his greek colleague Xenofon Paionidis and it follows the trend of the eclectic architecture. The building is based on the byzantine octagonal type and is one of the city’s most beautiful temples. Inside the temple you will be able to view the relics of Saint Gregory Palamas while next to the church, on the ground floor of the Metropolitan Mansion, operates the Ecclesiastical Museum of the Holy Metropolis of Thessaloniki.
