Ano Liosia

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Ano Liosia  is a suburb in the northern part of Athens, Greece. Ano Liossia has grown rapidly over the last twenty years. A large number of Roma live in this subburb of the Greek capital. The mountain range of Aigaleo is to its southwest. Ano Liossia has schools, lyceums, gymnasia, banks, a police station, a post office, supermarkets, a recycling plant, parks and squares.
The view of the southeastern portion of the Parnitha ranges lies to the north. Other panorama of two other mountains are Penteli and the Hymettus. A mountain slope is to the west. It is located East of Eleusis and the Peloponnese, Southeast of Thiva, South South East of Chalkida, West of Mesogeios Avenue and about 15 kilometers North of Athens, about 20 kilometers Piraeus and Poseidonos Avenue. A suburban railway station is being constructed at Fylis Interchange of Attiki Odos with Fylis Avenue. The station will be part of the new railroad line between Athens and Corinth.
Ano Liosia except for the northwest and the southwest were mainly made up of farmlands. Pasture farming, groves and mixed farming were common. Urban development replaced much of the farmlands between the 1970s and the 1990s and are rarely continuing. Today, half of the municipality are urbanized or residential. The rocky landscapes with bushes dominates the rest of the land.

Ano Liosia, justifiably so, enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited place. It is also said the place of best geographical environment and can trace its origin back to prehistoric times.
