Once upon a time a reigning family was residing in it,
we felt it's majesty the moment we arrived with Sylvia and Andreas,
now being rediscovered as a new source for the modern
greek history with no dramas,
in which photogenic Kings and Queens of the Hellenes,
have an iconic position.
A warm welcome to the main entrance to the Palace from it's current residents, 2 super- friendly dogs -as Andreas noted: the "King" and the "Queen"
always imagining what's behind these doors.
"Our power is the love of our people" is what the King and the Queen need and it is quite obvious here.
Where once Queen Mother Frederika and the spanish Infantas were enjoying the views
now we can enjoy this too
and visit this amazing spot just outside of Athens
where unbelievable flora
and early 20th century landscape design still exist
looks like yesterday the doors of a fairy tale opened,
and relics from the past can be seen
and then time passes and we leave it behind.
