Monastiraki is a famous district of Athens that extends from the Monastiraki square at the end of Athinas street until Thission, Monastiraki is a large part of the district of Plaka. The old name of the area was Monastirion because of the small church right on the Monastiraki square the today’s church of Koimisis Theotokou. At the square you will find the Monastiraki Athens Metro station and the main entrance to the flea market.
In the shadow of the Sacred Rock of the Acropolis there is the oldest perhaps the district, Plaka. The majesty of its history is deeply carved into the glorious, ancient remains, the Byzantine temples and the imposing, restored neoclassical of our time.
Today, Plaka is one of the neighbourhoods, perhaps the only one that, although in the heart of Athens, is not accessible by car. Plaka is full of life, as its innumerable taverns, its colourful shops and its attractions and the night fill the beautiful shops that you can have fun. In the cobblestone streets, whitewashed staircases and narrow alleys, every year, millions of tourists from all over the world.
