Agios Athanasios

Agios Athanasios

Walking route: Agios Athanasios


Setting off from Hatzipanagiotis’ mansion, take the road of Tsitalia and turn left to cross one of the oldest cobbled trails in the area. The uphill path, where the aromas of thyme and oregano are diffused, leads to Agios Athanasios’ church which is located at the top of a hill.

The chapel lies on the archaeological finds of the ancient citadel Vrasies, behind the picturesque harbor of Plaka.

Agios Athanasios’ church and Agios Dimitrios’ church (which is close) are both characterized as byzantine buildings with surviving murals. Two inscriptions discovered in 1510 and 1741, indicate that Agios Athanasios’ chapel was built before the 15th century.
The matchless beauty of this route will enchant you and the breath taking view at the end of the path will captivate your heart.
