The Church of Hagia Sophia in Thessaloniki, not to be confused with its more famous namesake in Istanbul, Turkey, is a significant religious site with a rich history. Constructed in the 8th century AD, the church is an excellent example of Byzantine architecture and is considered one of the city’s most important religious structures.

Inside the church, visitors can admire the stunning mosaics and frescoes that depict various religious scenes and saints. The artwork reflects the artistic and religious significance of the Byzantine Empire during that era.

Over the centuries, the Church of Hagia Sophia has undergone several changes and renovations, including conversion into a mosque during the Ottoman period. However, it was later restored to its original function as a Christian church.
