The Eleonas of Megara is spread out overgrown with centuries-old olive trees, among which are still preserved the Byzantine churches of Eleonas that the travelers of the 17th century saw on their journey.
«Returning to Megara, we took our horses and went three or four miles north,

built, as I found out, from the ruins of some older buildings.
In there we found ancient inscriptions»
