Thursday Doors

Doors of Pláka ~~

“Pláka is the old historical neighborhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporating labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Plaka is built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens. It is known as the “Neighborhood of the Gods” due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites.”  We stayed at a hotel in Pláka, which was the best decision we’ve ever made. Location, location, location! This post shows doors from the old part of Pláka. It was fun walking around the narrow streets looking for doors. And I found many! There will be more doors from Pláka in future posts.

  1. I love that many of these old cities are built on top of even older cities. When we were in Rome we were told that whenever they started excavating for a new building they had to watch for ancient ruins underneath. Great pictures. Thanks.

  2. Hi Angela, hope this isn’t a duplicate – having trouble with comments today. I love your pictures. Anything with labyrinthine streets is calling my name. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Nice gallery from a place with a rather grand nickname. 🙂 I haven’t been to Greece since the mid-seventies so I don’t have as many memories as I’d like. My memories of Athens are mostly of the Acropolis, et all, souvlaki, yogurt, and baklava, flies on the meat at the market, and toilets that were just a hole in the floor. 🙂
