Lets go Athens

Aigyptou Square

Aigyptou Square is a very small square where Patisionstreet meets Alexandras Avenue, and is very close to the main entrance of the PediontouAreos park. The name was given by the Greek state to honor Egypt for the aid it offered during World War II. In the square there is a bronze bust of Constantine Cavafy with the several surrounding historical buildings with elements of Egyptian style.

Some of the buildings that stand out include the building of the architect V. Tsagris which was built during the interwar era. In the same period, the apartment building with the distinguished clock on the facade was built. Another impressive building includes the Sarli house, in a neo-baroque style. Also, mention Mavromataion Street, with its mansions, is another remarkable sight.
