Psyri The small district is located in the historical center of Athens and is one of the oldest districts of the city. It stretches around Psyrri Square or Iroon Square, where the five major streets of the district lead: Miaouli Street, Karaiskaki Street, Agioi Anargyroi Street, Aristophanes Street and Aeschylou Street. During the Ottoman domination, Lord Byron stayed in the house of the sub-Procene of England, Theodore Makris, where he met Thireia Makri, whom he fell in love with. At that time there was also the mansion of Kyriakos Pithakis, the archaeologist who was later famous for the excavations on the Acropolis. After liberation, several manor families, such as that of the Hungarian ruler Ioannis Karatzas, settled in the area. One of the most famous residents of Psyrri was Alexandros Papadiamantis. In the neighborhood he lived for more than 20 years and for this reason he was nicknamed "Hermit of Psyrri". In our time, the Psyrri district is a picturesque and historic neighborhood full of shops, restaurants / taverns and bars. However, it is generally considered degraded and still faces criminality problems, particularly in its northern part, making it a sad exception to the historic center of Athens.
