Athens General: 349 reviews and 363 photos
Favorite thing: The 11th and the 12th centuries are said to be the Golden Age of Athens' Byzantine art. Almost all of the dozen most famous and important Byzantine churches in Athens, were built during these two centuries, and owe their origins to the Christian restoration that followed the campaigns of Emperor Basil 11 in the Balkans. Some of the best known monasteries were also founded in the same period in the environs of Athens.
