Lykabettus Hill in Athens, Greece
Athens Mountains & Nature - Lykabettus, or Likavitos, is located in the centre of Athens, near the Acropolis of Greece. On a hill with beautiful views of the city and ancient attractions. According to legend, the goddess Athena carried her burden in the palm of the Acropolis hill, but it caught up with the raven and reported bad news, which is why the goddess dropped her burden. It is believed that since then, all the crows have become black because of the wrath of the goddess. On top of the hill, you can walk down the long stairs or take a cable car for a nominal fee. At the top stands the church of St. George, and slightly to one side is an amphitheatre for open-air Lycabettus. ►View all Athens sightseeing
