Athens

Byzantine and Christian Museum

  Vasilissis Sofias 22      (+30) 213 213 9500     more than a year ago
Set in a beautiful building, surrounded by a serene courtyard –a leisurely outdoor stroll is a must- this Museum offers visitors the opportunity to explore the way of life, art, religious practices and customs of the Byzantine and Medieval periods in Greece. It is especially instructive as regards the intricate interconnections underlying the symbolisms of the pagan –ancient- and early Christian periods, revealing lesser-known facets of this transition. The Museum also houses a very important collection of Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons and frescoes. A gift shop is available.
