Dionysos: a walk to the ancient marble quarry


Dionysos-Penteli: a walk to the ancient marble quarry

This is a very surprising walk on the northern slopes of Mt. Penteli, famous for its Penteli Marble. 

  • enjoy dense forest and views as far as Lake Marathon
  • walk past 3 churches in the countryside
  • visit the ancient marble quarry turned into an open air museum
  • have a day outing for 3.95 Euro only per family or group of friends


The walk leads you through one of the last patches of dense forest that exists on Penteli mountain. A real treat for the eyes and the lungs! You will pass by 3 small churches, the open air old marble mines & kastro and another open air museum with modern marble sculptures. These museums both have free entrance. Heading towards the end of the walk, there is a nice cafe, so all ingredients for a great, sportive outing are included in this self-guided activity in Attica.
