Situated in the Athenian Agora on the south side towards the Acropolis is this delightfully tile decorated church very much with an eastern influence in the window shape. Dated to around 1000AD

It is inside the Agora, take a look if you are there. It's really nothing too special. In my opinion it's out place for that area which makes it interesting.

This was a very cute little church and definitely worth a stop inside the ancient agora. Many paintings inside are well-preserved and the architecture was nice.

The building was closed and there was no leaflet with opening hours so please do not expect to see the church inside. Then it's a religious surprise when the church is open :-)
