The Byzantine church ‘Agia Kyriaki’ built in the 6th century.

A few street photos of downtown Athens where there so many things to photograph. Athinas street, Ermou and Monastiraki are some well-known and busy streets. On that day Ermou street was so crowded my friends and I gave up and turned around. We went down a quieter street for a stroll. It’s probably a lot more crowded now that Christmas is approaching.  Crowdy streets are a happy site for shop owners and street vendors, but only if people are buying and not just taking strolls like we were haha!
