As of March 2023, 39 Eleusinians and lovers of Eleusis participated in 18 workshops. Under the guidance of 10 lecturers, they created 3 separate routes: “Street Archaeology, an alternative walk”, ” Industrial Memories, let’s give them voice…” and “Trees, flowers and fruits… Environment’s Guides”.

Do you want to discover Elefsina in the company of its people?

Αναλυτικά οι ημερομηνίες των διαδρομών:

  • Saturday 11/11/2023, 12.30-14.00, Trees, flowers and fruits… Environment’s Guides
    Starting point: ARKOPOLIS (end of Maria Kiouri Street)

The fertile plain of Elefsina, watered by the Elefsinian Kifissos, was a source of wealth in antiquity. Hence, it is no coincidence that Demeter, the mythical goddess of harvest and wheat, was associated with this place.

However, it is doubtful whether Demeter would recognise Elefsina today. Initially, the development of the industrial zone was a blessing for the place, however it resulted in the coastline’s transformation, the hills’ corrosion and the rivers’ disappearance. After all, what is Elefsina today? What is its environment like? Which streams flow through it; which plants sprout in it?

  • Sunday 12/11/2023, 12.00-14.00, Industrial Memories, let’s give them voice…
    Starting point: Refreshment on Kanellopoulou Street (opposite Jumbo)

Elefsina of today has been shaped based on its archaeological and industrial history, which constitutes its economic and cultural identity. It is the city that, in recent years, has been inextricably linked to the industrialisation of Greece.

Residents and admirers of Elefsina have created and offer a narrative walk that gives voice to the personal and collective experience of the people of its industry. During the coastal tour, we will discover impressive factory buildings and other industrial landmarks with a focus on the historical testimonies of the workers who gave them life

  • Saturday 18/11/2023, 12.00-13.30, Street Archaeology: an alternative tour
    Starting point: Junction of the Sacred Way and Athanasios & Anastasios Mourikis (on the Sacred Way, in front of Elaiorgiki)

Elefsina, one of the most significant religious centres of antiquity, attracts mystics, explorers, and visitors throughout the ages. The history of the city is found everywhere around us, in the scattered archaeological and historical monuments hidden in streets, alleys, courtyards, and squares.

People with an admiration for the archaeology and history of Elefsina have gathered the monuments that you didn’t know were worth discovering into a walking tour. Together, as modern explorers, we will explore the city and learn about its cultural heritage.
