Beautiful church, I recommend to attend the 11am mass on Greek, you’re in Athens, or the 18:30 English mass.

This stunningly gorgeous Catholic Cathedral of Athens is a beacon of Romanesque religious architecture. Completed in 1865 & constructed in a neo-Renaissance style, it is named for the purported first archbishop of Athens, that same Dionysius the Areopagite whom the apostle Paul is credited in...More

Family attended the 18:30 Mass on Sunday in English. Get there 20 minutes early if you want a seat. It was packed, mostly with English-speaking Asian Catholics.

Not the only Catholic Church in Athens, but surely the most beautiful one. Great mass, excellent choir!

We don’t speak Greek, but opted for the 9:30 am Sunday Mass in Greek (the English Mass is at 6:30 pm). Reverent liturgy with traditional hymns sung a cappella and led by a parishioner. Good participation among the people attending and many cultures represented.

This is the only Catholic Church that you will find in Athens, where the rest of the churches are Orthodox.

In Kolonaki area this church is a gem. When you around this area go and light a candle and admire the neoclassic architecture.

We attended an anticipated Sunday mass here. The church is typical Roman Catholic and evidently simpler if comparison to Orthodox Churches. We found the service typical of a catholic mass...that is why it is universal in character. We did not have to understand Greek to...More

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
