  • Between blocks of flats and residential buildings in this area to the exact half way along the most famous Athenian shopping, in a small square appears this church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, a gift of a devotee from which it takes its name. The building remained in the period, while the remaining parts planimetric profile of the street and the square are platforms, has been restored recently and, outside, there are some panels describing the stages of restoration. Inside (not photographed) the simple structure of the Orthodox churches, with many small rooms and the classic effigy of Saints in gold and silver in relief, object of faith with the faithful who approached and kissed the effigy kneeling at a small kneeler. Outside groups of faithful who were celebrating Orthodox Christmas/new year period. A wedding favor is very similar to many Orthodox churches scattered islands.

  • Athens is full history, you can find a piece of it at every corner. Very nice people and good food. Not an expensive city and with a good metro 
  • Is a hotspot in your visit to Athens, feel the aromas of the inssenssos, and the wonderful Orthodox decoration.

  • 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.
