This is the oldest church in the region, almost 150 years old, this is why it lies almost half meter under the current street level, because it was built during the Ottoman empire and anything Greek build those days should not be higher than the Turkish building, so it was build lower than the street level in order to keep the two floors and comply with the height regulation. Near the temple is a part of the byzantine wall, as it is across the street also.

I liked the atmosphere with the Fountain, the bars and the old town street on the back of it with its arc of vines and small shops. Excellent for the Baklava lovers- we bought 1kg. various Baklava for 14euros. As well there are fantastic coffee shops with very authentic atmosphere.

It's next to the Central Square of Komotini. It's nothing more than a very big wall with a sword on it. When i came here i didn't know for what it represented.
It's a 5 min stop from your walk in the city center. You take 2 photos and that's it. Nothing more.

There are several mosques in Komotini as I saw. Two of them are quite big: the Old Mosque and the New Mosque, which according to the plaques at both mosques, mentioning the year of construction, ist the oldest in town. Built in the year 1598, it is thus 23 years older than the 'Old Mosque'.
When visiting Komotini the Old Mosque was open, not so the New Mosque. The entrance is at a building with many windows, which must be a part of a mosque complex and not the mosque itself. Visible from the mosque is the minaret with one balcony (the Old Mosque has two balconies).
The New Mosque is in one of the prettier and pedestrianized areas of Komotini.
