  • A very beautiful and walking tour 35 km. away from the center of Athens. The Green and the waters of the artificial lake of Marathon to compensate. Recommended for a nice breath away from the city

  • Nice, beautiful place for a short getaway for the residents of the basin. Beautiful lake view offer the benches on the petals of the road before the dam where there is possibility of aragmatos with coffee from home and feature picnic. Reminder: we never leave our trash back!!!

  • For residents of Attica is a very beautiful day trip the morning walk. From that point and approaches the Lake is a great route. The view is amazing, children can learn about the ydrodotisi dam areas. It's nice to walk. As for the cafeteria is a k sells its views.

  • I had wished to visit this place for many years and, finally, I did. We are all familiar with the Marathon contests all around the world, but, this is the The Place, the origin, from where the Greek soldier Pheidippides, ran to Athens to report victory in the Battle of Marathon; he died of exhaustion after delivering the good news. Today's runners, fortunately, survive, although any Marathon race is extremely demanding. Visit the place with me, you are in no danger, enjoy good food and coffee at the shore of the Marathon Lake (it's an artificial one), wander the picturesque landscape, watch birds and just relax. Have a nice trip!
  • .. A beautiful place in Attica that many times its forests being burned for land speculation and as a final act of Love for the environment they now plant and deposit 5 kilometers away the garbage of Attica in the this area!!!!5 is for the memory of forests 1 is for all the destruction of the last green zone of Attica all concerned involved..Of course money for these people I more important for the conditions of people living in this area and of course whole Athens....money that's the only word they learned to worship.. Hypocrisy at its best...not only....
