What I can see

The Catholic church of Agios Vikentios (Saint Vincent) has a central European architectural style, a toothed pediment and is similar to the complex of Lazariston Monastery, right next to it. It stands out for the stained glass windows and the propylon with its austere lines, which are softened by the imposing wooden door and the mosaic depiction of Jesus.

What I can't see

The church is dedicated to Saint Vincent de Paul, the brotherhood from which the Lazariston Monastery was founded. With the exception of the sanctuary’s wall painting, the interior of the church is simple, almost with no decoration. Today, it is attached to the neighbouring buildings. It is hard to imagine that it was once a church without these building volumes next to it. The Apostolic Vicariate of Thessaloniki, founded by Pope Pius XI, is based here, with jurisdiction over Macedonia, western Thrace, Lemnos, Thessaly and the Northern Sporades islands.
