There one can find a multitude of options for restaurants and cafes”, he writes characteristically.

The Mayor of Athens Kostas Bakoyannis said of the square’s redevelopment project: “It’s a greener, more environmentally friendly project that harmonizes primarily with the historic character of the site. This is another project that, thanks to the simplicity of the design and the reconstruction of its space, represents the authentic Athens, the one that has remained hidden for many years.”

The square is built on three levels, one of which is dominated by the sculpture of King Theseus, son of Aegeus who gave his name to the square. The main objective of the new design was to ensure as easy as possible access for the general public, but also accessibility for people with reduced mobility, thanks to a wide staircase that has been installed, which leads to Aghios Asomatas. Passers-by can still enjoy the beautiful flower beds, and sit on the new cube-shaped seats to enjoy the place and its view.
