Right beside the “new” Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens is the Little Metropolis Church, formerly the Church of St. Eleftherios or Panagia Gorgoepikoos. It was built from pieces of pagan ruins (look closely at the stones and you’ll see). Open from dawn to dusk and free to visit, it’s worth a stop. The amount of history stamped into its walls was impressive.

Byzantine era church that is in somewhat good shape. Right next to the cathedral.

Proprio accanto alla massiccia cattedrale di Atene c'è Agios Eleftherios, conosciuta anche come 'la piccola Metropoli'. La chiesa del dodicesim secolo ha una particolarità - è stata costruita con il marmo di antichi templi, nel quale sono state incise delle croci.

Entre los locales es llamada la pequeña Catedral, por su cercanía a este templo y su pequeño tamaño. Por fuera no parece gran cosa, está construida enteramente de piedra, como la mayoría de iglesias del centro de Atenas, pero por dentro guarda unos detalles preciosos, desde su altar, las lamparas y las velas encendidas que dejan los fieles. Se puede visitar gratuitamente antes o después de ir a la Catedral.

Casi pegada a la catedral, pasa un poco inadvertida por su tamaño que es muy pequeño. De estilo bizantino, fue construida totalmente en piedra y guarda relieves de la época griega y romana. Por fuera no parece gran cosa, pero por dentro es muy bonita con el ambiente y figuras típicas de las iglesias ortodoxas. El centro de Atenas está repleto de iglesias como está, hay que estar atentos para no perderse ninguna.
