  • The Church of Santa Maria del Greci was built in the year 1200 on the site of the ancient temple of Athena. The word "De" in the title of the Church indicates that in the first centuries of its existence, divine service was celebrated here for Greek, i.e. Byzantine, Rite. And the main trick here that you can go down to a narrow underground corridor and see the foundations of the Temple of Athena. Well, we are fortunate to see at the church wedding.

  • An old church a few meters from the Cathedral. Beautiful also because of stained glass on the floor that let you watch the ancient Christian Temple below. You can also visit the base of the ancient Greek temple. To visit!

  • I'm not good at telling, the flyer left by the volunteers is already talk. A small but beautiful Church and especially the glass floor.

  • A place full of history and humanity. I chose this church to celebrate my wedding because it is warm, rich in history and in a context that speaks of life lived. The Unbearable Lightness of old town that I have defended and documented. I love this site because it gives me spiritual peace and I found something I had lost some time ago. 🙏 PS, the guides are very prepared and patients

  • A beautiful medieval church, which was built on the remains of an ancient Greek temple and so on the one hand includes remnants of medieval frescoes and paintings on the ceiling beams, but also insight into the Greek Foundation allows. Even if Santa Maria Dei Greci is a little off of the shot, it is absolutely worth a visit.

  • The Greek-Byzantine rite old cathedral was built in 1200 on the remains of a former Doric Temple, by some scholars identified as the Temple of Athena Lindia and Zeus Atabyrios (mentioned by Polybius).

  • The Church is beautiful and talented volunteer who for free and passionately tells the history of the place while the employees are to the phone and chat loudly. Unlike the Church, the area where it is located as well as the streets we walk to get there from the main street, are in complete disrepair. There's dirt everywhere smell of pee, weeds, crumbling houses.
