Updated: May 18, 2020
The only Byzantine monastery left in Thessaloniki, founded in the middle of the 14th century, on the ruins of an older building dated to the 11th century. The monastery founded by Empress Anna Palaiologina and named after two monks: Markos and Dorotheos Vlattis.
Inside the monastery, they preserve scripts, manuscripts, and a beautiful collection of historically and artistically valuable Byzantine icons.
The location of the monastery is 120 meters above sea level, making it a stunning viewpoint - one of the best in the city.
