Great small church that is on top of a mountain. Worth the hike to the top. Light a candle for a loved one also. Great photo opportunities.

One of my favourite buildings in Athens. So Greek with its white walls and round roof. It’s located in the top of the highest hill, so it’s quite a hike to get there.

Amazing views but if you walk from the hop on hop off stop it's 10 blocks uphill then another 200 odd steps to the funicular...it's a tough walk but lots of seats to rest😃😃

Stunning sunset views. There is a cafe and restaurant on the summit as well. Amazing 360 degree views of Athens. Take a taxi to the cable car, then the car up to the top. Walking up the hill was brutal.

A small church on top of a mountain in the centre of Athens the views from the top are breath taking. The church interior is your typical Greek orthodox loads of wall art to look at. Dark inside but worth a visit.

The Chapel of St. George is your reward when you have climbed the famous Lycabettus Hill - except from the fabulous views over Athens.

Well, the chapel is well worth a visit. Small, intimate, cosy - and a little messy the way old Greek churches often are.

Felt a little hard done by paying so much for the funicular to the top (on a cooler day would definitely have walked).
The church itself was another beautiful example of the Greek Orthodox tradition in their buildings and art work.
But the views are the best in and of the city. Worth the journey up.

A lovely chapel at the top of a hill. The inside is well worth a visit. Fantastic views of the city from the terrace. Well worth the climb either by steps and the funicular or on foot.
