About Agios Eleftherios
Agios Eleftherios is a very small yet important Byzantine church in Athens set in the shadow of the city’s cathedral.
Built in the twelfth century, Agios Eleftherios was once the main church in Athens. This fact, coupled with the vision of the diminutive church next to the monolith of Athens Cathedral has led to it being known as the “little cathedral” or Mikri Mitropoli. It is also known by the name Panaghia Gorgoepiikoos.
