Under the hill of Acropolis a very small and scenic neighborhood lies. Anafiotika is one of the most beautiful places in Athens (if not the most beautiful) and it it part of the historical neighborhood Plaka. The first houses of this scenic neighborhood were build around 1850 when builders were brought in Athens to work to the palace of King Othon. Some of the first builders came from the island Anafi, thus the name Anafiotika. Later, more builders came from other Cycladic islands and build houses there following the typical Cycladic architecture and due to this, this neighborhood gives the feel to the visitors that they are not in the center of a huge metropolis but rather in a small Greek island.
