Overview

The Presidential Mansion is the place to see a Changing the Guard ceremony in Athens, Greece. It takes place at the Presidential Mansion, at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which lies in front of the Greek Parliament Building.
The ceremony is dedicated to all lost Greek soldiers in past wars. It takes place every hour, on the hour, but the more impressive ceremony takes place every Sunday at 11:00. This is where a large group of Evzones (presidential guards) gathers in front of the Parliament.
The ceremony has become a popular tourist attraction in Athens since it’s a free and interesting thing to do in Athens. The Tomb, called a cenotaph, is empty and was made according to Ancient Greek custom.
