In the heart of the historical centre of Athens, right next to the metropolitan church, at Metropolis square, is the elegant, small church of Panagia Gorgoepikoos, also known as the church of Agios Eleftherios or the Mikri Metropoli.

It dates from the end of the 12th century and it is built over an ancient temple dedicated to the goddess Eileithyia, who during antiquity was the protector of pregnant women, like Agios Eleftherios in Christianity.
