Agias Irinis Square

Agias Irinis Square

Agia Irinis Square, named after the neighborhood church Agia Irini. The Square has become one of the most popular in Athens for those returning to the city center.

Agias Irinis Square used to be home to the flower market of Athens but all except one or two have disappeared as have many of the other shops on the square and surrounding streets (mainly Aiolou Street). This area was also once known for its garment works. The fabric stores that once dominated the lower end of the main shopping street of Ermou have now been converted into restaurants, cocktail bars, cafes and bistros. Only the torrents of color from bolts of fabric propped outside shop windows on smaller side streets provide a glimpse of what was once Greece’s textile Mecca.

Agias Irinis Square is a "Hot spot in Athens" according to the editorial team of High Life, in-flight magazine of British Airways. Through the pages of the magazine, Agias Irinis Square is presented as the best place of the city with beautiful neoclassical buildings and gastronomic trends. It is the hipsters’ paradise, as they say, where new outlets pop up every week!
