  • A very old church, kinda perfectly out of place in Ermou street.
  • This little Greek Orthodox church is one of the oldest churches in Athens, built around AD 1050. It's located close to Emau St and Plaka and within view of the Acropolis. Inside are some beautiful murals and icons. It's free to the public and definitely worth the few minutes it takes to walk thru it.
  • A typical and old orthodox church in the middle of pedestrian street of Ermou, you cant miss it!
  • This church was a very nice random find while strolling through the small streets of the area. It really is beautiful.
  • Typical Athens street view, both old and new seamless together.
