Visitors admire the Byzantine mosaics adorning the gigantic dome of the Rotunda on Saturday, June 25, 2022, in Thessaloniki, Greece. The circular building was built as a Roman temple or mausoleum in the 300s, shortly after became a Christian church, later on a mosque – and is now a museum, though liturgy is still celebrated a few times a year.
