The Fountain of St. Demetrios

Here Pelagia is drinking from the fountain that springs underneath the church. This is the fountain where St. Demetrios was martyred around 300. The fountain, the old Roman road, and the shell of the original church can be seen underneath the current church. Unfortunately, these catacombs had closed just before we arrived. Of course, we will be back many times. They serve Divine Liturgy in the temple every Friday night at 9:30 PM.
