Situated next to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, the Agios Eleftherios Church is also known as the ‘Little Cathedral’. The construction of the church began during the 12th century, and was built over the site of an old temple originally dedicated to an ancient goddess named Eleithya. Much of what was used in constructing the Agios Eleftherios Church came from existing structures. The marble blocks you’ll see were taken from ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine eras. It is one of the very few churches that has maintained its original form and thus still has its unique external sculptures.
