The catholic church is located at the small but beautiful square of Town Hall.
It was built in 1588, with the typical (during 16-17th centuries) baroque curve at the gable. It was destroyed the nazis? bombs during WWII by later it was restored and decorated again. It is dedicated to apostle Jacob & marty St.Christopher. We spend a few minutes inside but the interior was very simple with some nice corners but nothing to get excited with like big wall paintings etc
The exterior is good though with a nice façade.

The cathedral houses six side chapels (of the blessed sacrament, of St.Theresa, of Virgin Mary of Health, of Christ the King, of the Immaculate Conception and finally of Saints Spyridon and Arsenios)
