At the centre of the densely populated district of Agios Panteleimon is the majestic church of Agios Panteleimon, the largest in Greece and perhaps one of the largest in the Balkans.

It has a turbulent history, since the church was founded in September 1910, but the construction of the electric railway line made it necessary to demolish the church leading to the construction of another one. The works were completed in the beginning of the 1980s and the painting of the icons started in 1984 by the important artist Giannis Karoussos, who took 23 years to cover the vast surfaces of the church’s interior.
