Sacred Gate : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The Sacred Gate (Ierá Píli) was built in the 5C B.C. at the same time as the wall of Themistocles. It led to the Sacred Way leading to Eleusis. The Dipylon (Dípilo), of the same epoch, a double gate framed with two towers, constituted the main entrance to Athens. Along here was the route leading to the Academy.
