Photographer's Note

Church is a late 5th-century church in Ano Poli, Thessaloniki. During the Byzantine times, it functioned as the katholikon of the Latomos Monastery, and was adorned with rich mosaic and fresco decoration, which was renewed in the 12th14th centuries. Today, the surviving examples are of high artistic quality, especially the apse mosaic of Christ of Latomos (see WS). Under Ottoman rule, the building was converted into a mosque (probably in the 16th century), until it was reconsecrated as a Greek Orthodox church in 1921.
