Catacombs

Top choice monument in Plaka & Trypiti

Greece’s only Christian catacombs, signposted from Plaka, date from the 1st century and were the burial site for early believers. Around 5000 people are buried here; a guide takes you on a 15-minute tour of the eerie depths to let you see the lit alcoves and to explain the workings of the ancient cemetery.
