Unfitting...

The same hotel (see previous post) from a nearby peak. It was built on the site of an old sanatorium of the ´20s.

Looks like a really nice view.

Wow, a nice photograph of a hotel that looks very nice too. I wonder if the guests complain about hearing screams and laughter from the days when the sanatorium was there?

The place is in the middle of nowhere. Must've been a great place to relax. How far from the city is it?

Fenix, it's some 20km from downtown Athens.

Abraham, nice comment. Never heard about such complaints. But, sure enough, some people are doing some rituals ("magic" they call it) inside the abandoned building.

It's not that far at all. Must've been a great place back then.

You know, I am in love with that tiny church in Feneos, Korinth. Thanks!

I admit that I didn't know about that! Kosta, what was the name of this abandoned hotel?

In the same mountain, the most impressive Mont Parnes hotel is still open. You can find a photo here:
