Erected sometime between the late 15th and early 16th century this church is situated on Leonidou Rodiou square. Some of the original frescoes that once decorated its interior have been preserved – namely, sections of Ezekiel prophetic vision, the Society of Disciples, the Co-Officiating Fathers of the Church, the Ascension, the ecstasy of St. Peter of Alexandria, the Sacrifice of Abraham, scenes from the life of Jesus, His Crucifixion, Genesis, the Second Coming, ea.
During the Ottoman rule, the church suffered certain modifications, made necessary by its conversion into a functioning mosque, under the name of Dolapli Mescit. Excavations carried out in more recent times unearthed part of road and four tombs, dating from the Hellenistic era. Air raids during World War II waged some serious damages to the church of the Trinity, reinstated with the care of the Greek Archaeological Service after 1980.
