The Grand Metropolis Cathedral is better known as the Athens Cathedral or the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens. It is one of the relatively modern buildings worth seeing in the city. The old stone church looks very lovely located in this historic place. Built in the 1800s it throws light on the medieval era in Athens.

The lovely paintings and engravings are certainly worth seeing. Often we tend to look at Athens as an ancient city so it is surprising to see this monument from the recent history here. Built in 1862, this cathedral was constructed after Athens was declared as the capital of Greece.

The Grand Mitropolis is also the seat of the bishop and an important centre for Greek Orthodoxy. A visit here is a must if you wish to look at its beautiful colouful Byzantine – style frescoes inside.
