Mourning Rock

Αγέλαστος πέτρα

Elefsina is a small, industrial town 20 km west of Athens. As early as prehistoric times, this town has been linked to the ancient Greek's favorite myth, the myth of Demeter, goddess of agricultural and fecundity of the land and her daughter, Persephone. This is where, according to myth, grain crops were first cultivated, and this is where Greece's largest industries were developed, with disastrous consequences for the region and the sanctuary. Eleusis is to the west, a holy land, a point from where one can look both at the world around him and himself.
