City of Spata has been inhabited since prehistoric times and was one of the largest settlements in the Mediterranean region. The most important of the findings of the ancient period is the Sphinx of Spata dating from 570 – 550 BC. Today it is a rural city producing viticulture products and olive oil and is an important transport hub due to its proximity to Athens Airport.
