Kapnikarea

Athens, Greece

This 11th century, Bysantine Church is literally in the middle of the road on Ermou street at the edge of the Plaka district. It's surrounded by shops and traffic congestion and it looks terribly out of place. An exception was made to perserve it during Otto I's modernization of Athens.
