Aeschylia Festival 26.08.11 – 30.09.11
things going on all over Greece |

The partially restored ELAIOURGIO (a former soap factory) is the home of Aeschylia Festival. The factory is situated next to city’s main archaeological site, where one of the most important initiation ceremonies of antiquity, the Elefsinian mysteries, took place. In this dramatic setting the festival hosts a variety of theatre performances, concerts and films, as well as a renowned annual contemporary art commission.

Elefsina is 23 km (14 miles) west of Athens.
