Saint Paul’s Anglican Church

Located at the end of Filellinon Street, this neo-Gothic Anglican church was built in the early 1840s of Hymettus marble and limestone brought in from the Corinth Canal.

The cost of construction was covered entirely by the British government, the British Ambassador, and American and British Protestants living in Athens at the time.

According to Biris, the church was based on designs by Stamatis Kleanthis. However, other researchers attribute its construction to European architects, including the Dane Hansen and Englishman Charles Kokerel.
