Sailing Holidays in Metropolitan Cathedral

The Mitrópoli, or Metropolitan Cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of Athens and an important spiritual center of Greek Orthodoxy. It remains a major city landmark and the site of official ceremonies like coronations and important weddings and funerals. Inside are colorful Byzantine-style frescoes, gleaming treasures, and the tombs of two saints killed by Ottoman Turks: Agía Filothéi and Patriarch Gregory V.
