I went because of the review, and I am so glad that I did. I spent over an hour with Stratos who taught me a lot about icons and how you can identify quality and hand made products. The selection was amazing and I walked...More
This shop is a real treasure. Nestled in the Monistiraki flea market, this local family has been selling icons and religious artifacts since the mid-seventies. They're incredibly warm and pleasant to chat with. I spoke with the youngest (a gentleman named Stratos) for nearly an...More

My husband, daughter and I were visiting Athens this past week. My husband collects icons and found Byzantium on Tripadvisor proclaiming that he had to visit. So we did. My husband immediately began a conversation with Stratos about various saints and the types of icons...More
We came to this shop looking for an icon of Mary Magdalene as a gift. Though they didn't have one in stock, we were able to commission one, and they had it ready for us the next evening before our flight back to the US!...More
I visited this shop during my first visit to Athens. It is in the street full of shops near Monastiriaki street and seems like a litle oasis of peace and faith in the crowded neighborhood. Everything I read about owners on Tripadvisor became true during...More

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
