Ekklisia Agia Dinami has survived in the ever-changing urban center of Athens since the 15th-century. In order to preserve this tiny Orthodox Church, the Ministry of Education built its office tower around and on top of it. Squeezed between skyscraper columns, Agia Dinami is a popular spot for city workers to stop in the morning, leave an offering, and light a candle. Orthodox Christians will also kiss holy icons in churches, so don’t be surprised to find lipstick on them.

Pequeña iglesia que por lo que se aprecia ha quedado en medio del gran hotel Metropolis, de hecho el edificio del hotel casi que le da cobijo bajo su techo. Paseando por el lugar la encontramos de casualidad y nos llamó la atención, así que decidimos parar y entrar. El interior es muy pequeño pero está bien conservado, se ve que la gente entra a rezar porque hay velas encendidas. No sé de que siglo fue su construcción pero si pasas por el lugar vale la pena echar un vistazo.

Lo curioso de esta pequeña iglesia ortodoxa del centro de Atenas no es tanto su belleza, sino que si pasas por fuera no te das cuenta que parece una iglesia, solo las campanas exteriores en la parte de arriba es un detalle de que estás en el lugar correcto. Está prácticamente cercada por el hotel Metropolis, se puede entrar, por dentro tiene un pequeño retablo típico ortodoxo. Mucha gente para aquí para dejar una vela y rezar.
