Mount Lycabettus also known as Lykavittos, is a Cretaceous limestone hill in Athens, Greece at 300 meters (908 feet) above sea level.


 Pine trees cover its base, and at its two peaks are the 19th century Chapel of St. George, a theatre, and a restaurant.
Popular stories suggest it was once the refuge of wolves, (lycos in Greek), which is possibly the origin of its name (means “the hill that is walked by wolves”).
