At the commercial centre of Athens, at the square with the same name, is the church of Agios Georgios Karytsis, surrounded by buildings that are related to the intellectual and artistic life of the city.

It dates from the 11th century and belonged to the well-known Athenian family of Karitsis or Karikis. During the Greek Revolution in 1821 it suffered significant damages and it was reconstructed according to the plans of the architect Lysandros Kaftantzoglou.



Noteworthy is the oil painting of the parable of the blind man, while a unique experience is the mass with the polyphonic choir of the church.
