Legend has it that Athena, the goddess of wisdom, competed with Poseidon to see who could better serve as the city’s patron god.
When Athena presented the Athenian people with an Olive Tree, a symbol of peace and prosperity, they chose her as their city’s namesake. With thriving night-life, the Monastiraki Flea Market and plenty of hip cafes, it seems like she’s still watching over the ancient civilization today.
