Don't miss the opportunity during your stay in Athens to visit Elefsina, world-famous for the Eleusinian Mysteries and also as the birthplace of Aeschylus, one of the three great tragedians of antiquity.
Depart in the morning from your hotel and drive Northwest of Athens to reach Elefsina. The Eleusinian Mysteries performed every year in the honor of the goddess Dimitra and and her daughter Persephone. Nowadays, in the archaeological site of Elefsina you will admire the Roman courtyard where is the temple of Artemis Propylaea, the remains of a fountain and two triumphal arches. Then you will enter to the precincts of the sanctuary of Greater Propylaea, next to which is preserved the Kallichoro Frear.
Then passes from the Lesser Propylaea, having on the right the cave Ploutoneio and reaches the main temple of Demeter the Telesterion. The biggest religious center during antiquity continues to hold the secret of the mysteries, which were attended even by slaves, children and women – a great show of democracy for the time. The figures of Demeter, Persephone and Cronus and the rites for the coming of spring continue to enchant visitors today, and it is even said that the spring’s first wildflowers appear in Elefsina before they do in any other part of Greece thanks to its privileged relationship with the gods.
