Oldest Byzantine church in Athens to be restored




After 40 years, efforts are being made to restore The Holy Church of Agios Nicholas Rangavas in Athens.

Once part of the Rangavas family palace at the foot of the Acropolis, the church was previously a private chapel but eventually became a parish church.

Over time, the 11th century church has been impacted by the passage of time, with increased humidity and candle soot causing wear and tear to the church’s wall paintings.

The Greek Ministry of Culture has said that the 2 million euro restoration project will aim to preserve the church and its significance for future generations.
