The Agios Eleftherios church, also known as Mikri Mitropoli ("little metropolitan church") or Panagia Gorgoepikoos is a Byzantine-era church located at the Mitropolis square, next to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens (Megali Mitropoli).

It is often said[by whom?] Michael Choniates, the bishop of Athens, ordered the construction at the start of the 13th century, but is known nowadays it dates to the second half of the 15th century, already in the Ottoman period.
