053 Greece - Athens - Filopappou Hill caves

Lofos Filopappou
Filopappou Hill
"Hill of the Muses"

The hill was inhabited from prehistoric times to the post-Byzantine era. Rooms carved into bedrock are rumoured to have been the place Socrates was imprisoned.

The hill is now a park with pine-clad slopes and excellent views of the city and the Saronic Gulf.
