You can start the virtual stroll at the place of your choice by selecting a key location from the list below.
Aghios Athanasios
Another small detour to visit an old church, which was built in 1746...
Aghios Spyridon
Here we are in front of the entrance of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Aghios Spyridon. Our virtual stroll ends with a tour of the building and of the interior of the church.
Ierós Naós tou Taxiarchón
The Holy Church of the Taxiarchs was built in 1650. Do not try to translate its name with an online translator, it will tell you that it is the "sacred temple of the taxi drivers". Taxiarchs are the archangels Michael and Gabriel, military leaders of the "heavenly armies" in Orthodox theology.

On this square stands the bust of Kleanthis Triantafyllou, born in Sifnos in 1850, a famous publisher, journalist and poet who published in Athens the progressive political and satirical magazine Rambagas.
