What I can see

This square is very well “hidden”. During the morning and midday hours, some antique shops operate, which take us back to old times. From the afternoon onwards, it fills with young people, mainly students, who visit the ouzo taverns and bars. They are famous for their inexpensive and good quality cuisine, the traditional Greek flavours and friendly atmosphere.

What I can't see

With the arrival of the refugees from Asia Minor, many buildings with ground floor shops were built. These buildings also shaped the square. Antiques of excellent quality and many other old objects of all kinds used to be sold here. Today, only few of them uphold this tradition.
