Hymettus is located on the eastern side of the Athens basin. Its highest peak reaches 1026 m.
and it is called Evzonas.
The mountain is connected to the history of ancient Athens. According to findings and historical sources, ancient sanctuaries were founded in the area of the mountain.
The traveler of the 17th century E. Celebi said that Hymettus’ water and honey are unique and that its herbs heal almost all the diseases. At the same time, physicians from all over the world arrived at Hymettus to harvest herbs and they had to pay taxes to the sultan every year.
Hymettus is a rich ecosystem, having more than 600 species of plants. There are also more than 100 species of birds (about ¼ of all species in Greece) and several species of mammals, reptiles, insects, bats, and amphibians.
At an altitude of 270m. North of Vari is the cave of Nymphs or Nympholiptos (Archedimus). A cave with great archaeological value, because it is perhaps the only one in Greece that has carved statues inside. The sculptor Archedimus from Thira settled in the cave in the 5th century B.C. and turned it into a place of worship, especially for the Nymphs, Apollo, Pan, and Charites.
This particular mountain has great historical value and gives us many beautiful routes, suitable for families.
