“Insider's Plaka: the essentials” provides all the information you need to explore the most picturesque neighbourhood of Athens. The Monument of Lysicrates is the only classical choragic monument still standing, a one-of-a-kind remnant from the glory days of ancient Greek drama. A little down the street you will discover the intricacies and charming atmosphere of the traditional Athenian house, with its unique blend of Ottoman and neoclassical features. The church of Saint Nicholas Ragavas is a Byzantine jewel and commemorates the time when Athens provided brides from the emperors of the Byzantine Empire in Constantinople. The Tower of General Church is the only Ottoman tower house preserved in Athens. Shortly after the house of General Church, you will see the Benizelos mansion, the city’s oldest house whose facade is hidden behind a tall wall. The Kleanthes Mansion became the first university of Athens, while the Bath of Kyrristou Street is a wonderful and recently renovated in all its past splendour Ottoman hammam. The Roman Forum was for centuries the city’s commercial centre, as the Wheat Market, the heart of Ottoman Athens, was also here. Here you can see the Tower of the Winds, the Madrasa and the Fethiye mosque. Nearby Monastiraki is a vibrant square with a lost church perched on an ancient monument, a cursed mosque, a buried river and a great monastery that shrank. Finally, Saint Eleousa and Assizes gives us the opportunity to explore the neighbourhood of Psyrri.
