Cathedral of the Apostles Peter and Paul

Cathedral of the Apostles Peter and Paul

The date of construction and the time of conversion of the Cathedral Apostles Peter and Paul into a cathedral in Veria have not been yet identified. Some evaluations place the construction of the temple around the 15th century after the conversion of the old Cathedral into a Muslim mosque. In 1728 Archbishop Joachim had the temple significantly renovated and then the templum and the cathedral throne was constructed. After this intervention the building was converted into a three-aisled basilica while at the west side there are still preserved traces of murals of the same period.
