The Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens was constructed with materials from over 70 abandoned or ruined churches. The interior includes notable frescoes and icons plus a 24 meter high dome.
It is known as the official church of Athens and serves as the headquarters of the Archbishop of Greece.
Right next to the big church is a smaller cathedral dedicated to Agios Eleftherios. This 12th-century church is decorated with 90 relief scenes.
