The Sacred Way To Eleusis

For sure there is many places around Attica of great importance. Historical , mythical or religious, Attica have a lot of things to discover , explore and visit.

One of the most holy place is Eleusis. A city between Athens and Corinth. Famous for its rites from the Classical Antiquity. Every year in the month Boedromion (The month September/October in ancient Hellenic calendar), Athenians were taking the "Sacred Way" from Athens to Eleusis.

So in a cloudy morning, in the footsteps of our forefathers, we took the road from Athens to Eleusis. In between , we did a break to some parts (Temple of Aphrodite and Ancient Bridge and Well) of the original old sacred way that it saved untill today.
