No matter how many times you’ve visited Athens it’s simply never enough to explore the sights of this incredible city. My name is Andreas, let me travel you back in time and show you an aspect of this city that most people simply overlook; the trails of Ottoman era in Athens.
We will travel back in time and make a tour to…. the Tzistarakis Mosque, the Wheat Market, the Fethiye Mosque, the Tekke (Tower of the Winds), the Bathhouse (hammam) of the Winds (which is open on Mondays and from Wednesday until Sunday), and the Benizelos – Palaiologos family mansion (which opens only on Tuesday until Thursday and on Sundays).
No minarets are rising to the sky, while many buildings, having been constructed on ancient sites, were destroyed by an archaeological frenzy in the 19th and early 20th century. Still, a careful observer can distinguish some fragments of that era.
