The city of Elefsina/Eleusis has been chosen by the European Commission as one of the three European Capitals of Culture for the year 2021. 23 km from Athens. Eleusis, the birthplace of Aeschylus, was in ancient times one of the largest sanctuaries in Greece where the famous "Great Mysteries of Eleusis" were celebrated. Located at the end of the Iera Odos (Sacred Way), which begins at the Ceramic Cemetery, this superb site is an interesting half-day excursion, or a stopover on the way to Corinth. However, the modern city is very industrial and offers little interest other than a stroll along the port. Today, few Athenians make the trip for pleasure.
