Holargos is a municipal in the Northern Athens. Evidence is distinguished from the Roman, Byzantine and Late Byzantine years; during the Turkish occupation the land of Holargos was still inhabited.
The suburb took its name, wanting to honor Pericles, a mountaineer and general of arbitration, who was also called "Holargeus".
In 1926, the founders of Holargos relied on the data of the time regarding the location of the ancient municipality-birthplace of Pericles and emphasized history and culture, having the vision of a city that would stand out at all levels.
For this reason, the main street of the Municipality was named Pericles Avenue, while the emblem of the Municipality of Holargos was the bust of Pericles and the ten stars, which symbolize the tribes of Ancient Athens. It was designed to connect the already existing identity of the then Municipality, with the historical Greek past.
During the occupation, a unit of the Italian army occupied Holargos and established its headquarters. With the German invasion, the construction activity stops, while the liberation of the Greek nation finds the area in a very bad situation.
Liberation finds Holargos in a bad situation. Slowly, however, its reconstructive course begins again. Holargos is being rebuilt from its ashes, with its inhabitants turning to petty trade so that they can stand on their own two feet and rebuild the city they loved so much. A small shopping center is created around Metaxa Square - today Dimokratias Square - and the first shops make their appearance.
The real reconstruction of Holargos actually begins after 1960. The change of character of the area from a rural settlement with villas and greenery, to an area with apartment buildings and increased traffic, is a fact. Nevertheless, the public spaces and the green spaces remain intact, due to the completeness of the implemented street plan of 1928. The correct building bases in the garden city standards, combined with its privileged position at the foot of Hymettus, the easy and fast connection with the center of Athens, but also the natural beauty of the area, highlight Holargos in a modern city, ready to meet the requirements and prospects of the new era.
Today, despite the strong growth, Holargos has managed to maintain the character of a neighborhood, in relation to other municipalities in the basin. Its area is considered a residential area with a good quality of life and there tend to live residents of middle and high income, high educational level, while for many years, it is the favorite place of residence for many artists and people of letters.
The transport connection of Holargos has always been one of its advantages, as it is one of the closest areas to the center of Athens. There are two Metro stations in the area, the National Defense station and the Holargos station.
On the borders of Holargos there are the following three temples: a) The Virgin of Faneromeni, b) The Holy Trinity and c) The Exaltation of the Holy Cross, whose chapel is the church of the Resurrection (Of the Six), built in 1930 in memory of the six people who were shot in Goudi on November 15, 1922.
