At the end of February we explored the area called Douka, in Ymittos Mt. in order to trace the ancient Sfitteia road (path) that linked Athens to the Demos of Kropia (today’s Koropi). The area is locked between the peaks Profitis Ilias and Mavrovouni, both belonging to the Ymittos Mt. The Sfiteia path, according to information, was calmly ascending the slope, crossed the Stavros col and then descended towards Athens. Finding it proved difficult. On the one hand vegetation was very dense. On the other, we believe that older inhabitants of the area used the stones that once hold the ancient path, in order to create cultivation beds on the slope. In several places though, the path is clearly visible. Soon, it will be cleared and sign-posted.
