Church with a view!
Dec 2021 • Solo
This cute little church proudly stands atop Lycabettus hill, what a view from here! The interior of the church is worth checking out too, do wear your mask though...the path going up here is a well made concrete path, easy enough

Nice chapel

This is a nice chapel on top of the hill. The views from the hill are tremendous and there is a great cafe /restaurant there also.

Worth a trip up

Many ways to get here, walk, cab or funicular. Just come to see the highest point in Athens. It can be crowded, but give it time and you will see the sights.

Highest Church in Athens
Jul 2021
This whitewashed little Church, reminding on those on Cyclades, stands atop the highest point in the Greek capital - the Lycabetus Hill. Therefore it is visible from all over Athens.
The Church is very cute, with nice interiors and dedicated to St. George killing the dragon. It's bell tower is across the Church towards the viewpoint.

Gleaming on the hilltop

There are a number of marvellous aspects to atop Mount Lycabettus and this Chapel is one. Seeing it on a Sunday afternoon framed against the deep azure of the sky, we though it looked its best.

Stepping to the interior is to admire a proliferation of frescoes and icons. All silver St. George on his horse slaying the dragon is dramatic.

A fine iconostasis separates the holy sanctum from the worshippers. The dome was infused with light, adding a celestial feel.

Travelled up by the funicular and was amazed to come out so close to the top and this wonderful chapel. very moving. Highly recommend that you come close to dusk, where the city looks truly lovely.

Great views
Mar 2019 • Couples
We took the cable cart up to the top!

There were some great views and you are able to have a look inside the old chapel.

Once you’ve had a look around there isn’t anything else up there apart from a bar. If the sun is out it would be great to chill and have some drinks but It was too windy.

I will review the restaurant on their trip adviser I personally wouldn’t recommend.

Pretty chapel high above the city
Sep 2019 • Friends
The Chapel of St George sits overlooking the city atop Lycabettus Hill. It's a beautiful setting with history. The view is worth the hike, and it's a long hike up and down.

QUAINT AND BEAUTIFUL
Sep 2019
This little white church stands at the very top of Lycabettus Hill. It is very quaint and worth viewing while you are there. It's beautifully decorated inside with paintings and murals and it's exterior crosses light up at night if you're there for the Sunset.
