Relics of St. Demetrios

Here are the relics of St. Demetrios. As soon as you enter this little room, the smell of myrrh is quite powerful. It's amazing, what more can I say?

We've heard that they open up the relics on his feast day (Oct 26) and that you can smell the myrrh from BLOCKS away. It takes pillows of cotton to soak up all the myrrh that his relics have exuded. We definitely plan to be there this Oct 26!
