Lykavittos Hill, also known as Mount Lycabettus, seen from the top of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. According to Greek mythology, Athena, the patron deity of Athens, dropped the rock here by accident when she was creating the Acropolis. The top of the hill used to be barren, until trees were planted there at the turn of the twentieth century. The 19th century Chapel of St. George, a theatre, and a restaurant are located at the top. At a height of over 900 feet (277 meters), Lykavittos can been seen from almost anywhere in Athens.
