This is the home of the Ecumenical Greek Patriarchate, which is the highest and holiest center of the Orthodox Christian Church in the world. Though not the most impressive architecturally, the church hosts a number of unique items, such as the patriarch throne, mosaic icons, and tombs of three female saints. Before it was dedicated as a church in the 17th Century, it was used as a monastery.
