Syntagma Square

Syntagma Square


Athens, Greece (GR)
Otherwise known as Constitution Square, Syntagma square is a very significant area that you will probably encounter several times during your stay in Athens. The square has a long lasting history and even today you have a good chance of finding a demonstration of some sort in or near the square.

In the square's center there are copies of statues from a Naples museum. The 100 or so trees within the square include oleanders, orange trees and cypresses. The square is a conflicting mixture of bumper to bumper cars and shoulder to shoulder people on its lower perimeter and a more serene, wider, tree shaded, central expanse; the focus of which is a brown marble fountain in the middle of the square. Its turned on most of the time. The many benches provide room to take a break in the shade. There are three metro entrances in the square.

After ten months or restoring, Syntagma square is open to the public again.
