Short Description
Short Description The Church of the Presentation of Virgin Mary - Old Cathedral of Drama was inaugurated on September 10th 1974 and is a three-aisled basilica, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, St. Paraskevi and Saint Nektarios. It is built on the spot where formerly there was another church, which in its turn had replaced an oldest Byzantine one.
Although no icon or vessel was saved from the original church, several antiquities, Greek, Roman and Christian, were brought to light during excavations.
