Monumentally grandly placed on high its multi-faceted facades are marvellous. And not least because of the distinctive horizontal light brown stripes encircling the whole edifice. It made for an impressive sight as we ascended Agias Marinas towards it. Being under renovation inside with lots of scaffolding didn’t distract from the expansive nave culminating in a grand iconostasis. Frescoes and icons are numerous throughout. A wonderful dome filled with ambient light provided a gorgeous vista. Stained glass apertures suffused the whole space with a soft warm light.

Quite a spectacular church, although it is not yet a hundred years old. However, from the Acropolis or Philopappou hill, it, along with the National Observatory attracts the attention ahead of everything else. The complex includes an ancient chapel with interesting frescoes, some of which, however, were moved to the new church and are adjacent to the more familiar modern paintings. To get to the church is quite simply - from metro station "Monastiraki" or "Thissio" on foot 5-7 minutes until Nymfeion (hill of Nymphs), further to the right on the street of thesame name about 40 metres. It is convenient to take pictures from three sides.

The church is located up on a hill as you walk along Apostolou Pavlou so it is easy to spot but if you walk 50 or so metres up Otrineon you can still see the steps carved into the rock that allowed easy access for residents up and down the rocky slopes - histroy everywhere you look.

Worth visiting for all Marinas in the world :) It has calm atmosphere, interesting paintings and icons (ikony). If you are not Orthodox - worth to ask about the meaning of some actions, which going on in the church. The location is on the hill, (as mostly all in Athens), but a bit hidden.

The church itself is located just south west of the Acropolis on a site just above the Sanctuary of Zeus. The church itself is stunning to look at but it also holds the secret that it is located on a 13AD cave. Very interesting place to stop off at!
