Church Of Agios Nikolaos

Church Of Agios Nikolaos

This is the Church of St. Nicholas located in the Greek town of Litochoro. This beautiful stone Orthodox church is the most famous church in the city, and one of its two main churches. This was one of the most unique Orthodox churches that I saw in Greece. Its architecture was different from most Orthodox churches, and I would describe as a mixture of different building styles.The church is the town's most famous church, and mass still takes place on Sunday. We were actualy there during mass, so I decided to take a quick peek inside the church, to see what an Orthodox mass looks like.

This is the town of Litochoro, situated at the foot of Mt. Olympus. It is the starting point for climbers setting out to climb Greece's highest peak. This is the main town square in downtown Litochoro. The town's most famous attraction is the Church of Agios Nikolaos, loctaed in the main downtown plaza area of the town. The town is more of a shopping destination, but there are a few tourist attractions here as well, including a park with a lake and a war memorial. The town is also sometimes spelled as Litochoron, but the official name is Litochoro.
