Three Hierarchs Chapel, Central Athens

Today the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Three Hierarchs, i.e. St John Chrysostom, St Basil the Great and St John the Theologian. These three Saints are highly venerated in Greece, since they represent learning, knowledge and the Greek letters. During this festivity the Greek schools and teachers also celebrate, showing their respect towards these three great Christian Saints.

Here we have pictures from a small chapel dedicated to the Three Hierarchs, located in central Athens, near the Kalimarmaro (also known as Panathinaikon) Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896.
