This monument is in the center of Monastiraki. Outside is really impressive, but inside is nothing special and quite dirty. Better save money and time to see something different. The city and the around is full with better places to see.

If you're in Greece you have to see all the historic sights. There are hundreds of beautiful churches which are all a must see, especially if you're Greek Orthodox. They are all unique and beautiful.

You cannot miss this building when in Monastiraki square. It seems almost a little out of place but is interesting as it has been preserved and demonstrates a different edge to the typical Ancient Greek architecture in the area.

There is an archeological site that the entry is to the right of Tzisdarakis Mosque. It shows how how many different influences Athens went though in past 10,000 years and more remarkable what too place in Athens within the last 3,000 years.

This place is very magnificent. In the center of town, in the middle of the main square lies this old and beautiful piece of architecture. It's very relaxing and calming.

This is a really nice piece of architecture that has been used as museum for a long time. Unfortunately it is not currently open and needs some TLC to bring it to the condition it deserves to be in.

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
