Sacred Pilgrimage of Panagia Grigorousa

Sacred Pilgrimage of Panagia Grigorousa Sacred Pilgrimage of Panagia Grigorousa
In the heart of Athens, among the archaeological sites of the Roman Agora and Hadrian’s Library, at the intersection of Dexippou and Taxiarches streets, is one of the most important pilgrimages of the city, the church of Panagia Grigorousa.

It was built in 1922 at the location of an older Byzantine church. Its interior is decorated with impressive wall paintings, work of the famous painter from Zakynthos, Demetrios Pelekasis, while a prominent place occupies the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary, a relic brought by refugees from Asia Minor and donated to the church, called “Panagia Grigorousa”, because it fulfills quickly the prayers of the faithful.
