A small square at the junction of Athinas Street and Ermou, under which the Metro station is found.
Monastiraki Square consists of crossroads with many visitors since it is here that the pedestrian ways of Hephaestus and Pandrosou begin.
Turning onto Areos Road, you will meet the Museum of Greek Traditional Art and move towards Plaka - where the basilica of Pantanassas from the 9th Century B.C. and the view of Heridanou River were found during expansion works.
