A Walk on Apostolou Pavlou Street
Apostolou Pavlou pedestrian street, links Dionyssiou Areopagitou pedestrian street with the historic district of Thesseion, and, eventually Monastiraki.
In 51 AD, St. Paul the Apostle visited Athens, the cradle of Philosophy, Science and the Arts, and the proud owner of Parthenon. He arrived by boat at Faliro, the then harbor of the greater Athens area, and he walked to the city where he found an altar bearing the inscription “to the unknown God”. As he waited for his students Silas and Timothy, to arrive from the Greek province of Macedonia, he walked across the ancient Agora and the Acropolis, visited the Agora and discussed with philosophers. His destination was Areos Pagos where he preached the Unknown God to the Athenians and instituted Christianity in Athens.
This magnificent pedestrian street is the way St. Paul walked from the Agora to the Areos Pagos, and the Christian Athenians dedicated the street to him.
