PENTELIKO MOUNTAIN AND ITS FLAWLESS WHITE MARBLE

Reflections under the Attic Sun

It is not only walking through Penteli‘s natural paths and exploring the Flora and Fauna of the Mountain ,it is also the fact that you are lost in a reflective mood when you think that this Mountain is the source of the white,flawless marble which was used in the Ancient Times for the construction of  the Acropolis of Athens ,the Parthenon and so many other monuments.It is the Penteliko white marble that shines under the Attic sunlight.

Also,the name of the north-east slopes of Dionyssos on Penteli dates back to time immemorial as this was the first town in Ancient Attica,the town that welcomed Dionyssos the God of Vegetation,Wine and Theatre .How can you forget all this Historical past and the Greek Mythology and just walk on the Mount taking photos and playing with your dogs ?Past and present interrelated moments walk ahead hand in hand for a better future….
