Athens Cathedral


Entrance to Athens Cathedral built in 1862.

This ornate 1862 cathedral is the seat of the archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church of Athens. Far more significant, both historically and architecturally, is the small 12th-century cruciform-style marble Church of Agios Eleftherios next to the cathedral, built of bits and pieces of ancient temples and earlier Christian monuments.

Mass is held at 6.30am on Sundays.
