Monastiraki is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Athens, located at the heart of the city.

Monastiraki is a heady mix of culture, architecture and shopping streets full of a jumble of artisanal soaps, traditional crafts, handmade sandals and souvenir T-shirts

Evil eyes and traditional pottery abounds. Leather belts in any colour? You’re covered!

Take a stroll with us through the hectic streets.

There’s a lively flea market to explore, with everything and anything you could possibly need.

Everywhere is bursting with colour and commerce.

The area is named after Monastiraki Square, which in turn is named for the Church of the Pantanassa that is located within the square.
