Modern monuments of Athens

Athens has many places to visit besides the remains of the splendor of ancient Greece. In addition to the quaintness of
some of its neighborhoods, here are some of the monuments visited that have their origins in more recent times. Many
of them are neoclassical. Interestingly, in one of the cities where we see the original samples of this style also
find its second version of the nineteenth century.
