    This is the Church of Agios Nektarios located in the Greek city of Trikala. Like most churches in Greece, this one is named after an Orthodox saint, in fact in Greek, agios means, "male saint".
    Agios Nektarios was a saint of the Orthodox Church who lived in Aegina, Greece. He lived from 1846-1920, and this church is named after him.

    I have no idea how old this church is. I couldn’t find anything about it online, so it probably has no historical significance, other than being nice to look at.
    The church is located just off Highway 6, on Makedonias Street, in Trikala.

    Osman Sah was the turkish benefactor who sponsored the building of the mosque that bears his name, therefore his mausoleum was built right behind it. It's quite small in size, but a very interesting monument as not too many have been preserved in Greece.

    I don't know if I am spelling the name correctly in English (feel free to let me know how it's spelled). In any case, this is the best preserved mosque in Greece, and the first one to be found North of Athens. It is attributed to Sinan (1490-1588) [again, please excuse any misspelling- I read about this stuff in greek you know] the great turkish architect who marked his era with more than 360 monuments. Nowadays, it's empty and not used for anything, but the local authorities have expressed the will to use it for cultural events. It's a very good example of the typical mosque in Greece during the ottoman ocupation: one central square room, with a patio covered by 3-5 small domes (in this case 5). Right behind it is the mausoleum of Osman Sah, the benefactor who built it.
