Monastiraki Athens  

Monastiraki Athens - Attica (Greece)

Monastiraki. The Athenian district of Monastiraki (literally “small monastery”) is located north of the Acropolis and northeast of the old neighbourhood of Plaka. The bustling, busy district is a place of constant trade. Every day and especially on Sundays (if there is flea) life revolves around the street trade. The centre of the flea market is located west of the Monastiraki square, the Avyssinias square. It's a very lively, busy district, to which both tourists and Greeks find their way. In the streets is very much for sale, from souvenirs to antiques, from toys to furniture, jewellery and knickknacks and used clothing to ceramics. One thing is certain; here you can often haggle and make a bargain purchase. Interesting monuments in Monastiraki are the pillars of the Hadrian's Library, the Tzistaraki mosque, which has turned into a library and the lovely church of Pantanassa (This church was first called "big monastery" and then "small monastery"; hence, the name of the district). In Monastiraki there are also many taverns and restaurants.

The Church of Saint Mary Pantanassa
