Next to Monasteraki square, you will recognize a Turkish mosque. It is one of the few mosques that has been preserved from the time of Turkish occupation. The Turks had converted many Byzanthine churches into mosques. The opppsotie happened when the Turks had to leave.

This building is now a Museum of Folklore and is owned by the Ministry of Culture.

Monasteraki became one of the most beautful squares of Athens. It was always lively and that is still the case. The square is located on top of the metro station Monasteraki. On the square, you can actually have a look inside a part of the metro-station which exhibits an arechological relict. It’s a great example of integrating the old with the new.

You can always find an abundance of fantastic fruit on Monasteraki Square. It’s not really the place where the locals shop, but at least you don’t have to go to the other part of town to get some great fruit.
