Video: A virtual tour of pre-revolutionary Athens
A tour of pre-revolutionary Athens
Athens was greatly destroyed during the Revolution. Thus, apart from the ancient monuments and churches, almost all the old buildings were built after the liberation.
But among them are some witnesses of the Turkish occupation of Athens. Their scarcity makes them even more valuable.
Some of these buildings are known, some not.
Here you’ll see them in the order you’ll meet them on a tour in Athens.
