Overview

The Church of Panagia Kapnikarea is a Greek Orthodox church and one of the oldest churches in Athens.

The Panagia Kapnikarea Church is a Byzantine treasure, built in the 11th century, over an ancient Greek temple that was dedicated either to the goddess Athena or Demeter.

The church is located in the middle of the modern, lively downtown street in the city of Athens, right in the middle of the high-traffic shopping area of Ermou street, at the edge of the Plaka district.

Internally you can see walls feature mosaics and religious works of art.
