The Church of Panagia Kapnikarea, is a byzantine church dating back to 1050.  The church is located on Ermou street, which is right in the center of Athens. Which makes this a really unique place. Because the area is so rounded by shops and restaurant's and right in the middle of all that, is this small old church. Its very surreal.  Inside the church during periods when it is open to the public, there are always two Nuns, who make sure the church is clean and people are not damaging it. For such a small space it is filled with  amazing pieces of art that go back more then 900 years. Its a great place to find quite in the middle of the hectic city.
