This hidden, picturesque, tiny, byzantine church is a worthwhile site on your way to Pnyka at Filopappou Hill with interesting frescos.

A small church with rich history and popular among newly weds. The religious icons in the church, the wall, is truly a marvel and must-see for historical and religious art enthusiasts alike.

This small church is on the way to Filopappous hill, and it's in front of Socrates prison. Nice church with a few icons, the most interesting aspect is the texture in the external walls.

This is an understated but pretty little 15th century Byzantine church, located a little off the main tourist trails, with amazingly textural external walls (see photos) We would suggest coupling a visit with a walk up Philopappos Hill!

This church lies at the base of the Acropolis and Filopappas Hill, and, although it is on a wide walking path, it lies somewhat hidden in the trees. It is worth a look. The church itself is built with an interesting mix of stone, brick,...More
