Well worth the visit! We couldn't tour inside because they were having Palm Sunday services at the time, but it is absolutely beautiful. The park across the street is a great place to spend some time.

This church is constructed totally out of metal. It had been constructed in Europe and then dismantled piece by piece and shipped to Grecia. The inside is stunning with all the ornate fixtures and pictures. Don't leave the area without visiting it!!

The church is quaint with a great store across the street with cheap religious souvenirs. Also across the street is a "Pops" which has the best icecream anywhere! Try their sundaes with three exotic flavors. My mouth waters thinking of it!

There is a park surrounding the church where you can relax and just view the church and people watch. Good opportunity for pictures and the locals.

I wouldn't call it a "music temple" -- but in the center of the very lovely park is a dome and there are sometimes music performances there. Also, the street between the park and the church is a pedestrian walkway and there... More
