The Syntagma station of Attiko Metro is located at Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens, Greece. It serves as a transfer point to the Blue Line (Line 3) with the Red Line (Line 2). It also serves as a connection point (albeit at street level) to the Athens Tram. When the Metro first opened, the station was the terminal station for both the new lines. It is a transportation hub for E.TH.E.L. buses, for the Tram as well as for taxi.It has the most passengers of all the Athens Metro Stations.

Several of the architecture works were erected by Thodoros Papadimitriou, a famous sculptor.
