At a small distance from Syntagma, on Mitropoleos street, is Mitropoleos square. It is surrounded by discreet cafes and stores with church items. The Metropolitan Church of Athens dominates at the square, designed by Theophil Hansen in 1842. Right next to the church of Panagia Gorgoepikoos, known as “Mikri Mitropoli”, erected in the 12th century over the ruins of an ancient temple.
