The Metropolitan Cathedral of the Annunciation (Greek: Καθεδρικός Ναός Ευαγγελισμού της Θεοτόκου) popularly known as the "Mētrópolis", is the cathedral church of the Archbishopric of Athens and all Greece.
It’s Athens’s biggest church and located in a wonderful central square.
Very nice Cathedral. We were able to visit even whilst they were having mass
Very beautiful cathedral, built in the 19th century, including byzantine, neoclassical, gothic and romanic elements. It's the place where all the religious ceremonies of the greek state take place, and contains the tombs of St Filothei and Patriarch Gregory V of Constantinople, both killed by the Turks centuries ago. It's the place where King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain were married in the 1960's. Definitely worth a visit.
This must be one of the most visited Churches in Athens, after many years of renovation it is at last finished, restored to its former beauty.
Probably the most tourist-visited church in Athens, after years or renovation is now complete, nice architecture and big space inside, interesting to come here during a mass or while celebrating Easter.
