At a beautiful spot of the most picturesque district of Athens, Plaka, we encounter the Byzantine church of Agia Aikaterini. It dates from the middle of the 11th century. Initially it was dedicated to Agioi Theodoroi, but in 1767 it became the Metochi of the Monastery of Agia Aikaterini in Sinai. It is believed that priests from Sinai were the ones who planted the palm trees around the church creating a unique oasis for the visitors. There are remarkable icons and holy relics at the church.
