Hippocrates Garden is a quite new attraction, even if it gives the impression to date back to ancient Greece, and that's exactly the intention. Hippocrates Garden is a small Greek settlement, as it is believed that it looked like in the 5th century BC.

The small ancient settlement began to be built in 2008 with support from the EU. It's not just a place to look at, conferences are organized, and concerts and plays take place in the theatre

A few years ago, when we got a tip about Hippocrates Garden, we drove there with preconceived ideas. But oh what we were mistaken. It turned out to be an amazing place, and it was obvious that they had made efforts to build such a authentic Greek home from ancient times as ever possible. We were deeply impressed.

Hippocrates Garden is located in the middle of nowhere and it's not easy to give road directions, but I'll try. It is located between Antimachia and Mastichari, but a little to the west, and south of Plaka Forest.
