Panagia Chryssokastriotissa (the Lady of the Golden Castle or Our Golden Lady of the Castle) is just down from the Old University in Plaka. There was once a Byzantine church on the spot which was itself built on an ancient temple to Hestia (Athens!). What we now see is a barrel-vaulted single cell basilica, a 19th century church, purpose built for the post Independence population boom.
