This is the main square of Athens. Unfortunatelly it is nothing special anymore compared to the past. What is worth seeing are some marbles which is the only thing left from the old square almost 100 years old or even more.
What is the most fascinating thing about this square in my opinion is the way it was named after. In 1843 greek people gathered outside the palace (which is used as a parliament now) and asked for constitution which in greek is "Syntagma". The King afraid of the people had started the process of creating the first constitution of Greece.
Note: During protest marches this square is usually full with people and unfortunately a few times there have been some bad incidents the last years so it is better not to go there when there is a big protest march.
