You have to visit the Agora, that means “market Place” to visit the perfectly preserved Temple if Hephaestus.The Agora was the political and economical Heart of the Ancient Greek civilization.There is also a clean WC (toilets) and cold water fountains on it.

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

tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
