Theologos the Great Basilica

The basilica of Theologos the Great is one of the most significant monuments of the middle Byzantine period in Veria and dates back at the beginning of the 13th century. Of the original form of the monument, only the Sanctuary and a part of the main aisle among the three aisled of the wooden roof of the Basilica are preserved. Today it appears as a single spaced temple with a gabled roof.
There is also a painting decoration at the original section which is still preserved, with exquisite wall paintings dating back to the second quarter of the 13th century till the beginning of the 14th century. One of the wall paintings standing out is the depiction of Virgin Mary praying along with two angels, the Communion of the Apostles, the Ascension, the Annunciation and the depiction of St. John with Virgin Mary.
