After our series of articles on the secret and unknown attractions of Athens and its suburbs, we wanted to expand our search to Piraeus. The port of Ancient Athens, with its own important history and distinct personality, has many known and unknown attractions that the visitor deserves to discover. The unpleasant thing in the case of Piraeus is that many of the ancient monuments were damaged or neglected, neoclassical buildings were demolished, and important landmarks were lost on the altar of modernization and reckless building development (mainly during the 1960s and 1970s). In this article we present 7 important sights of Piraeus (in chronological order), each with its own story, which most of us have seen at some point but without knowing their significance.
