Ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, was best known for his ethic and moral contributions to philosohpy. He was considered rather enigmatic as despite his great influence he never wrote and most of what we know about Socrates comes from second hand accounts of Aristophanes, Xenophon, and Plato. Because what is known about the philosopher comes from different and sometimes conflicting accounts, we were left with great ideas and the so called Socratic problem - who was he really as a historic figure? He may have been described as stranger by the conventions of fifth-century Athens, but the truth is his legacy lives on to be remembered as one of the most widely known figures in the Western philosophical tradition. Our apartment symbolizes the importance of his efforts to make this world a better place. Located just under Philopappos Hill, take a stroll on the hill to find The Prison of Socrates where he was sentenced, just across from the marvellous Theatre of Herodes Atticus.
