Summer in Exarcheia is relieved at the small hill of Strefi, which was a quarry until 1920 that provided the area with construction material for the beautiful neoclassical buildings. They started planting trees in 1926 and the family of Strefi, who owned it, donated it to the Municipality of Athens in 1963. Since then they gradually shaped the paved paths that lead to the small open stone theatre, the fields and the playground. With an afternoon café at the canteen you can also listen to the hoopoes that live on the hill.
