The square has taken its name by the monument Horologion of Kyrrhestes (Tower of the Winds), an octagonal marble building with representations of the winds on its pediments. On its northern side stood until 1898 the madrassas of Athens, the Islamic seminary which during the reign of Otto has been converted into prisons and a place of executions. As a matter of fact there was a platanus tree, where they hanged those that were convicted, and they had to salute the tree, something that gave rise to a famous Greek phrase.
