The Doors of Plaka (Part 2)

Walking the narrow lanes of the Plaka neighborhood in Athens, one can’t help but notice the variety of colorful, elegant, worn, and graffitied doors of the 19th-century buildings. Efforts to restore and preserve Plaka have been underway for many years. It’s a neighborhood consisting of mostly restored neoclassical buildings sprinkled with neglected ones in the midst of ancient ruins. When I need to escape the clamor of Athens, Plaka offers breathing space away from the hectic pace of the city.
