One of the oldest churches in the city of Athens, Greece, is the Church of Panagia Kapnikarea. The church is thought to date back to the 11th century. The fairly small church has a beautiful Byzantine architecture style. The church has a feel of history, it is dated but that adds to that feeling. The church was up for demolition in the 19th century but was saved from demolition by Ludwig of Bavaria. It is still a fairly popular place of worship in the city.
You can get to the church by taking the tram to ‘Monastiraki’ which is a short walk away. The 025, 026 and 027 buses also stop close by at ‘Monastiraki’.
