The Church of Panagia Kapnikarea (Greek: Εκκλησία της Παναγίας Καπνικαρέας) or just Kapnikarea (Greek: Καπνικαρέα) is a Greek Orthodox church and one of the oldest churches in Athens.

History

It is estimated that the church was built some time in the 11th century, perhaps around 1050. As it was common with the early Christian churches, this was built over an ancient Greek pagan temple dedicated to the worship of a goddess, possibly Athena or Demeter. When King Otto I King of the Kingdom of Greece brought the Bavarian architect Leo von Klenze to draw the new city plan of Athens, The church was considered for demolition and it was the King of Bavaria, Ludwig I who objected the decision and saved the church.
