The Eleusinian mysteries, one of the most important religious ceremonies of ancient Greece in honor of Demeter and Persephone, are to this day a question mark as to the full content and their ritual. We are trying to reach out and live the mystique that characterized through what has transpired and what is assumed to be.

SCHEDULE

We start our tour to Elefsina and more specifically from the archaeological site of the area comprising the local Citadel as the sanctuary of Demeter, which received the Eleusinian Mysteries. We find the Temple of Artemis and the Temple of Demeter and then we will visit the Archeological Museum of Eleusis and the post-Byzantine Church of Saint Zechariah surrounded by walls of ancient era before returning to Athens.
