Pikilo, exploring the unknown mountain of Athens !

On Sunday the 12th of March SAS organize an easy hike on “ Pikilo ’’ one of the five mountains of Athens’ basin. The name “ Pikilo ” says it all about the rich variety of flora that exist on the mountain. The back view from the top is superb and will also have the opportunity to notice the area where … 2500 years ago the important naval battle of Salamis between Greeks and Persians took place as well as the picturesque Zastani Gorge !
