It is a big Cathedral, though somewhat plain inside and out. It did not take long to visit, only about 15 minutes. I would recommend a visit here - it is actually the seat of the Greek Orthodox Church and Arch Bishop in Greece. It was made more meaningful because I was listening to an audio tour on my phone, do a search of Rick Steves travel audio guides to download it before your visit!

Beautiful Cathedral. The main church of city. It's located on big and spacy square in the centerif city. The temple dosen't look like typical orthodox churches, may be at the beginning you can think it is Catholic. It's really wonderful inside and outside as well. Of course if you visit Athens you must see this church.

The Great Metropolitan of the Annunciation is the athedral of the Archdiocese of Athens. The first stone was laid in1842 by King Otto the First and his wife Amalia van Oldenburg. The chirch was initially built in 'Greco-Byzantine' style, however, between the end of the 19th and the middle of the 20th century, lots of alterations and additions both to its interior and exterior, changed the building into is current appearance. Inside are the tombs of Gregory V of Constantinople and Saint Philothei. Admission is free, although a (small) donation will always be appreciated.

An impressive and big church that you will find in the center of Athens. The epicenter of Christian religious celebrations.
