Most churches in Greece range between tiny and small. This one is impressive, not only because of its size, but also because of its location. If you are interested in churches, this is definitely an important one.

I went to Mass here on two consecutive Sundays before doing a little research to discover its history. Marble steps lead up to the impressive interior of this Cathedral, which was built in 1865. The church has three aisles . The marble pulpits donated by Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph 1 during his visit to Athens in 1869. Ex King Juan... More

I think this is the only catholic cathedral of Athens. A beautiful one specially when decorated for a wedding! Don t get confused: the avenue used to be called Panepistimiou but now it s called Eleutherios Venizellou, same as the airport.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
