What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others. (Pericles)
There is truth in Pericles’ words: the stories of our ancestors are told through the monuments they inspired; those ancient buildings in Athens & Attica, in turn, inspire us today.
Inspiration has thus come full circle. Thank you, Pericles, for the monuments we now admire, and which, thousands of years ago, were merely an idea in some brilliant mind.
Nearby, an imposing defence tower, known as the ‘Palace of Theseus’, offers a view of Vidi beach where Greek ships once harboured on the eve of the naval battle of Salamis.
Eleusis is the ancient sacred town of Attica notorious for the cult of Demeter, goddess of the harvest, as well as the popular Eleusinian Mysteries (a hope for life after death).
