At one of the busiest spots of Athens, at the Monastiraki square, is one of the oldest and lesser known churches in the city, dedicated to Panagia Pantanassa.

The present day surviving church dates probably from the beginning of the 17th century and is built over an older monument, and it was the catholicon of a women’s monastery. Initially it was called Mega Monastiri (Large Monastery), however a few years later it declined and since 1821 the name Monastiraki prevailed and it was given to the wider area as well.
