The Syntagma Square


Syntagma Square is the central square of Athens City. Syntagma Square is named after the first Constitution. In result to a popular and military uprising on September 3, 1843 the first King of Greece Otto was obliged to grant it.

It is located in front of the 19th century Old Royal Palace, housing the Greek Parliament since 1934. Syntagma Square is the most important square of Athens City. Not only from both a historical and social point of view, but also as the epicenter of commercial activity and Greek politics. It is a popular city-center gathering place.

The eastern side of the square is higher than the western. Dominated by a set of marble steps leading to Amalias Avenue; beneath these lies the Syntagma metro station. It also includes two green areas to the north and south, planted with shade trees. Moreover,  in the center is a large mid-19th century water fountain.
