FIRST ATHENS CEMETERY

Petit Futé's opinion on FIRST ATHENS CEMETERY

Vintage plate 2020

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.

L'endroit est insolite. Je ne voyait pas un cimetière comme celui-ci dans la Grèce antique. C'est une visite qui me parait incontournable à Athènes, et je ne regrette pas du tout de l'avoir fait

Comme il est agréable de visiter un tel cimetière ! En effet, ses églises/chapelles à coupole, ses tombes de marbre, sa végétation (palmiers, pins, etc.) resplendissent à la lumière du Soleil.

Nous étions venus pour nous recueillir sur la tombe de Demis Roussos, que nous avons trouvée grâce à un pope (sinon, nous ne l'aurions jamais trouvé, vu la taille du cimetière). D'ailleurs, la tombe est impressionnante par sa modestie... celle qui caractérisait Demis, sans aucun doute.
