This is a small little church in front of the hill where the Acropolis is . This church is a typical Greek place even the colours make it special . A must visit when you walk up the hill past it .

Great little temple on the pedestrian zone of Dionysiou Aeropagitou, under the Acropolis. St. Sophia's church is part of the Meropion Institution for helping elderly women. The church itself has a nice backyard were it can host christening ceremonies etc. Definitely should visit.

pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
