Plaka is a district in the center of Athens under the Acropolis. It borders on the south with the Makrigianni district, to the east with the Stylon area of Olympian Zeus and Zappeion, north with the commercial center of Athens and west with Monastiraki. It has been characterized as a traditional settlement. It is also known as the "Quarter of the Gods". After the war, Plaka's buildings were preserved as a whole, and Plaka was the only neighborhood in Athens that could see the city as it was 100 years ago. In the area there are museums, taverns, restaurants, cafes and tourist shops, while buildings of famous citizens of old Athens are preserved. Worms in Plaka In the section of Plaka to the Acropolis there are Anafiotika. It is a quarter of Cycladic architecture, built by Anaphite builders who, in the second half of the 19th century, were looking for a neighborhood to build their homes, since in the rest of Athens the cost of renting or buying land was expensive for them. Similar areas, where the internal migrants transferred the architecture of their place of origin, have been elsewhere in Athens, but they have not survived the building reform over the years. At Plaka, the artist George Savvakis lived and worked.
