At Monastiraki square are simultaneous present all the periods of Athens. The whole history of the city is in this small area. A small church is all that is left from the women’s monastery that gave the area its name. Hadrian’s Roman library, the Tzistarakis mosque, the neoclassical station of the electric railway, which is one of the oldest in the city, but also modernist buildings, and street vendors with every kind of objects create the explosive identity of the square.
