Agioi Apostoloi tou Solaki, Ancient Agora

The church of the Holy Apostles is the oldest church in Athens (1020) and stands near the southern entrance of the Ancient Agora. It was built in the early 11th century. It was restored to its original form in 1954-57 and stripped of its 19th century additions. Inside, you can admire its fine Byzantine frescoes.
