Byzantine and Christian Museum :: Gardens

The gardens

The gardens of the Byzantine Museum are an oasis in the heart of the city where visitors can take an imaginary journey through history and art. Seating areas are provided under the fruit trees, surrounded by aromatic herbs and fountains. Three small themed exhibitions of historic and archaeological interest are presented in the gardens:


The Well-Cistern, on how Athens was supplied with water from ancient times to the present; 

Paradise, on the Byzantine concept of Paradise in life and the afterlife; and

The River Ilissos, on the development of the fluvial landscape on the banks of the Ilissos from antiquity to modern times.
