The Acropolis of Athens, Greece.
Fascinating household which was built in 370 b.C. and was inhabited for about a century. The Mosaic floors represent Niriida as Ippokampos and battles between Arimaspous and Grypes, Sfigon and Lefiton. It's a characteristic sample of classic and hellenistic architecture. The 1st century b.C. a burial yard was built and it got radically renovated in 1990 by the Swiss Archeological school.
Epiphany or 'The Blessing of the Waters', is held every year on January 6 throughout all of Greece. In this ritual a priests toss a cross in the waters, followed by young men diving into the frigid sea to retrieve the symbol of the Christian faith.
