East Attica

The Regional Unit of Eastern Attica, based in Pallini, is one of the eight regional units into which the Region of Attica is divided.

The population of the Eastern Attica unit is 516,549 inhabitants and its population density is 332.02 inhabitants per sq km.[1] Its area is 1,517 sq. km.

A breath away from bustling Athens, Eastern Attica hides great charm, combining mountain and sea, blue and green. A one-day excursion is enough to discover its secrets. Organize an escape to the most important attraction of Southeast Attica, the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, with the endless blue at its "feet". Get to know the vineyards in Markopoulos where the famous Mediterranean wine has been produced for centuries and visit the wineries of the area. Follow the route towards the sea, where you will pass through green vineyards and olive groves to reach Porto Rafti, the Mediterranean port, with clear blue waters and idyllic bays, such as Erotospilia, Agia Marina, Agios Spyridonas, Avlaki. Of course you will enjoy good food in the taverns by the sea. If you like hiking in nature, walk in the dense pine forest located on the border of Porto Rafti with the village of Kouvaras and explore the National Park of Souni. Discover cult sanctuaries of antiquity, such as the Sanctuary of Artemis in Vravrona, and its Archaeological Museum. Around the area of Kalyvia you will admire important finds from the Neolithic era, ruins from the Mycenaean period, while near Keratea you will see the ancient theater of Thorikos. A walk to the city-museum and second largest port of Attica, Lavrio, whose mines contributed the most to Athens once becoming a maritime powerhouse, is essential. It is worth visiting the Attic Zoological Park, in Spata, the Peania Cave and the Vorre Museum.

In 2010, "Kallikratis" united the rich folklore and tradition town of Vari with the beautiful garden town of Voula and the unique natural beauty town of Vouliagmeni. Administratively they belong to the Region of Eastern Attica. These three municipal units created perhaps the most beautiful city in Greece.
