Photographer's Note

This is a "blue" hour view of Monastiraki square, with its new "looks" after recent works of restoration. In the backgroung you can see part of the "sacred rock" of Acropolis. In the middle a small part of Plaka, one of the most picturesque neighbourhoods of Athens (there are not many left, unfortunately).

On Monastiraki square, you can see on the left the old Mosque, built in 1759 by a Greek-Muslim named Tsisdarakis. Right behind the Mosque, you can see some of the ancient columns of Hadrian's Library. To the right you can see the Metro Station. To the right of the Metro Station (not visible in this photo), there is the central entrance of the famous Monastiraki Flea Market, also known as "Yusurum".
