Greece - Athens - Anafiotika
Established in 1860 by craftsmen from the Cyclades, the district of Anafiotika closely resembles a little island village. For many years the settlement was classed as illegal and the authorities attempted to have the occupiers evicted. The picturesque jumble of little white houses lies just under the Northern face of the Acropolis plateau, just minutes from Plaka.
