FIRST ATHENS CEMETERY
Petit Futé's opinion on FIRST ATHENS CEMETERY
Created in 1837 by King Otto, this cemetery is the oldest in Athens. Here lie many Greek celebrities such as the actress Melina Mercouri and more recently the singer Demis Roussos, as well as historical figures such as Theodoros Kolokotronis, the hero of the War of Independence, or Heinrich Schliemann, the archaeologist who discovered Mycenae. Lose yourself in the cemetery to discover the magnificent marble stelae and sculptures.
