Hymettus Hymettus Hymettus
Hymettus was for ancient Athenians an important place of worship with many sanctuaries but also marble quarries. It is an important habitat with rich fauna and flora which has managed to survive in spite of the destructive fires and human activity. It is the favorite destination for the Athenians who wish to enjoy nature or to visit the beautiful caves, with the Koutouki cave the most well-known over Paiania. Here is also the historical monastery of Kaisariani.
