  • The Ymittos is one of the two mountains that surround the ATTICA Earth. The finer point of the Kaisariani monastery is located. Built in the late 11th century a.d. stopped working in 1833. Access is easy because it is located close to a residential area. Buses serving the 223 and 224. The area has an extensive network of trails suitable for wonderful walks in aesthetic Park. Is one attraction not known to tourists because it is not included in the proposed tours. But I was skipping the Athens visitor not seen one of the most idyllic and unspoilt landscapes of Atticus.

  • I try to visit this monastery should be very interesting. Unfortunately I didn't have the right information so I went on a Monday morning and unfortunately the monastery is closed on Mondays. The other day a sign on site indicated the open from 9.00 -16.00. For those thinking of going by car must consider that the last 800-900 metres (slightly downwards) are on a restricted road in passing so it is likely that you have to let the machine rather low in an area where there are no real parking spots. The area where the monastery is very nice and there are also walks to do in the various trails in the surrounding woods. To see it from the outside, the monastery has appeared to me rather little. I hope to avoid at some other tourist a wasted trip

  • This Byzantine complex was established in the 10th century on Mount Hymettus, overlooking Athens. The original church from this period is still accessible and some of the frescoes are in an excellent condition. This Eastern Orthodox monastery is an important part of the story of Athens which, of course, did not stop after the Classical Period. An added bonus of visiting is the views of the city and the serene natural surroundings that you can go for a walk through.
  • Amazing walk and great view of Athens. You can get a taxi to drop you off at the bottom of the hill and walk through the middle trail between the streets and enjoy the beautiful flowers as you make your way to the top.
  • Fanatastic hill of Athens with a Byzantine Monastery on the top. Beautifull surroundings, recommended the walking around.
  • A bit off the beaten path. Worth a visit as a change from the ancient sights of Athens.
  • Amazing Byzantine monastery amid wonderful natural surroundings, springs, parks etc
