At the commercial centre of Athens, in the middle of the picturesque square that nowadays constitutes a point of reference for the city, one can see the impressive church of Agia Eirini, which was constructed according to the plans of the architect Lysandros Kaftantzoglou.

The church functioned as a metropolitan one until 1862 and was related to significant events of modern Greek history.

For its construction they used material from demolished churches in Athens and from ancient ruins, while the icons were made by the important artist Spyridonas Hatzigiannopoulos.

Its impressive gold-plated screen was donated by Tsar Nikolaos in 1850.
