Alimos Marina

Alimos, formerly known as "Kalamaki", is one of the southern suburbs of Attica, known for its beaches, marina and the good quality of life it offers to its inhabitants. It was a special part of the life of the wealthy Athenians of the last century as a popular holiday place. It shows great housing development in the 70's as wealthy Athenians are active building cottages and hotels bringing rapid growth in the surrounding area that is reflected to this day. Not coincidentally, next to it was the old airport of Athens until 2001 where it was transferred to Spata.
The name Alimos probably comes from the Homeric word "als" which means sea or grain of salt. According to another interpretation, the name comes from a shrubby plant that grows on coastal soils. It is the homeland of the greatest historian of antiquity Thucydides and is one of the first municipalities of ancient Athens. Legends and Traditions have accompanied for centuries the history of the area that has always been a point of interest with important references dating back to the Homeric years.
Excavations in Alimos and the surrounding area revealed settlements dating back to prehistoric times and early Helladic houses dating back to around 2,300 BC. Very important findings were the ceramic utensils, pottery, jewelry, tools and weapons of the obsidian era where they led the scientists to the conclusion that there were inhabitants who came from the Cyclades. In the necropolis of the area, built family tombs were discovered where they contained various valuable objects that accompanied the deceased.
