Picturesque Anafiotika gets municipal makeover


After completing similar projects in other parts of the historic center of Athens, municipal crews have now began cleaning graffiti off street walls in the picturesque Anafiotika neighborhood of Plaka.

The neighbourhood flanks the northeast side of the Acropolis and is popular with visitors during the summer months.

Graffiti has been removed from around the popular neighbourhood of Anafiotika.

Cleaning operations were conducted under the supervision of an archaeologist from the Ephorate of Antiquities.

Crews focused on areas that had been covered by graffiti for many years.

Around 75 liters of special solvent were needed to clean 250 square metres of walls, which were then covered with another material that repels graffiti.
