The small church of Agia Dynami is situated at the centre of Athens, completely surrounded by a modern building.

Its name refers to the Virgin Mary and was given to the church because all pregnant Athenian women in order to give birth to strong children.

The church was erected in the 16th century over the ruins of an ancient temple of Hercules and it was the Metochi of the Penteli Monastery, while in the same area there was an Old Christian basilica. According to tradition, just before the Greek Revolution in 1821, at the Metochi ammunition was made, supposedly for the Turks, but most of it was given secretly to the Greeks.
