  • This Greek Orthodox Cathedral does not get 5 stars because I'm Greek. Not at all. It is indeed a place that exceeds your expectations of a cathedral. The church itself is really spacious and super beautiful inside. The Easter ceremony there is magnificent and you might catch a glimpse of Tom Hanks sometimes. There is ample room for parking which transforms into a great space for events which they organize often there, with live music, dancing and food. I have had many incredible days there. Check out my pictures for both events and church ceremonies.
  • One of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in, and I've been to a few in Greece. Very welcoming feeling from everyone I encountered there and I would definitely go back for mass. The architecture and mosaics alone are worth a peek even if you aren't a church goer. There is free parking on site and across the street.
