Lined with antique shops, ouzo bars and even the occasional peddler selling antiques, this vibrant commercial square is a popular attraction for locals and visitors.

This square takes its name from Emperor Haile Selassie, who supplied financial aid to buy food for refugees in 1922.

In days gone by, merchants and shoppers would regularly gather in the large square to buy and sell everything from animals and food to clothes and tools.

Rebuilt from scratch, the whole area of Monastiraki now plays home to excellent shopping and modern architecture, as well as a few touches from its ancient past.
