This square is familiar to tourists thanks to the flea market that spreads over the area. But some miss the square for its own interest. Between the smells of souvlaki and kebabs coming out of restaurants, the crowds of tourists and street performers, this square is full of action and stimulation.
In Monastiraki Square there is a small church with the same name as the square, not far, there is also a handsome fountain that is made of marble. During the past decades, renovations in the square added a metro station underneath the street. This, by the way, is considered one of the most impressive metro stations in the world.
