Mount Penteli

Mount Penteli is one of Attica’s renowned ranges, famous for the marble extracted from its quarries, which was used to build the Acropolis.

With its exquisite yellowish-amber tint, this white marble shines with a golden hue under Attica’s sunlight, adding to the Acropolis’s magical aura.
