Ilio, Greece

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.

Ilio is a suburb in the west-northwest part of Athens, Greece. The two mountaintops of Aigaleo lie to the west. In 2001, the population of the city was 80,859 and an area of 9.25 square kilometers. Ilio was mainly made up of farmlands. Pasture farming and groves were common. At present most of the municipality is urbanized or residential. Mining was common in the western part between the 1960s and the late 20th century.
