Karitsi Square

Karitsi Square Karitsi Square Karitsi Square Karitsi Square
The ladies who drank hot chocolate just before the performance at Mousouri Theatre have been substituted by young people who flock this peculiar triangle included within the streets Karagiorgi Servias, Kolokotroni and Stadiou. The busy, noisy bars and taverns coexist harmoniously with the church of Agios Georgios, a donation of the Karikis family in the 11th century AD, and Parnassos Literary Society, work of the engineer Ifikratis Kokkidis in 1890. Not bad for a square which from antiquity until 1840 was a cemetery.
