Strefi Hill

Strefi Hill (Greek: Λόφος Στρέφη) is located in the neighborhood of Exarcheia in Athens, Greece northwest of mount Lykavittos.

It belonged to the Strefis family. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, a stone quarry operated there, but in the 1920s its operation was suspended and trees were planted on the hill. In 1963, the Strefis family handed over the hill to the city of Athens.
