Church constructed in the 4th century with healing properties
The Church of St. Constantine and Elena is one of the attractions of the city of Plovdiv. The temple is in Saborna Street 24, in the old town. It was constructed in the 4th century on the ruins of the old fortress. The Church of St. Constantine and Elena is the oldest Christian church in Plovdiv. In Rome, the emperor Constantine the Great announced Christianity as the official religion in the year 313. Plovdiv peoples decided to built a temple in honor of the emperor. The church is named after Emperor Constantine the Great and his mother. The place where the church stands was not chosen by coincidence, it actually has a symbolic significance.
