Most of the structure of Church of the Holy Apostles was damaged when Ottomans were controlling Athens. The eastern section of the church was not damaged. There were several extensions built over the last 1000 years. All the extensions were later removed in the 19th century to restore the original shape of the church. The reconstruction was completed in 1956.
