Perama
Athens

Perama is located at the westernmost edge of Athens and is 14.7 km away from the city center. The south side of Perama borders the Bay of Keratsini, while the western side faces the waters of the Strait of Salamis. According to the above, the name of Perama is probably due to the position, which is "pass" (Greek: Πέραμα, πέρασμα) from the mainland part of Athens and Piraeus to the island of Salamis. The area is rocky. Indeed, the territory has slopes in some places over 30%. The port city of Perama was once home to a thriving shipbuilding industry, but has seen its fortunes wane over the years as buyers abandoned it for cheaper options outside Greece.
