Holy Commuters

Early morning in "Evangelismos" station, named after the "Hospital of Immaculate Conception" which is exactly above the station. Many neighborhoods, stations, streets and towns are named after christian saints. In the metro lines only, eight stations are named Saint This and Saint That (Agios is the greek name for Saint). The Red Line runs from Agios Antonios to Agios Dimitrios.
Evangelismos station is just near Hilton Hotel, National Gallery and Kolonaki shopping district.
Where exactly is it?
