We walk through Athens of the 19th Century, seeing the early monuments of the city as a capital, touching upon the source of inspiration, namely, the classical ancient period. During the 19th Century, Athens, the new capital of the Modern Greek state, was adorned with several new buildings inspired by its distant past. This inspiration remained strong until the beginning of the 20th Century. Some of the monuments that our walk passes by are: The world famous Athenian Trilogy, Neobyzantine buildings, the Troy Mansion and the listed as a landscape monument National Garden of Athens. The preserved original view place, close to the 19th Century edge of the city, where the last wolf attack occurred. The stadium where the first modern Olympic Games took place and the hill that the flat stone pulpit, known as “vema”, where all the great personalities of the Golden Age of Athens spoke, is still preserved. This is a real Athenian walk, from the 19th Century to the antiquity, passing by important landmarks and also hidden places within the busy capital, finishing at the hills opposite the Acropolis, the place where it all began. A walk back in time!
Hi, I am Babis and I am an author and a photographer and I deal with the defensive, traditional and neoclassical architecture and the environment over than 20 years. I was born and I live in Athens and it is my great pleasure to introduce my city to visitors. I have written three books, the first one is a study for the Fortified Residences in the Peloponnese 15th- 19th century, the second is for lake Kerkini, one of the most important wetlands in Europe, and the third is “Monasteries in Greece, 15 centuries of Art and Architecture”, as well as many articles about architecture and travelling.
