Eleusis

  

Four pages of various monuments in Eleusis were added.

Hiera Odos
Temple of Artemis
Sacred Well
Ploutoneion

Eleusis (Elefsina in modern Greek) is an extensive archaeological site near Athens. Regardless of its size and historical importance, it is not very popular to the tourists, probably because it lacks in any major monument, I mean, for example, there is no still standing temple there. And the place is not really attrative; Elefsina is now an industrial area of Athens, and there is scarsely anything recommendable (well, except this site).
Even so, it is certainly a must site for the antiquity lovers.
