A small bridge made of wood and glass floor, passing over the walls, will allow visitors to view them. The project also includes a minor intervention at the spot where the scarce remains of one of the fortification’s towers lie.
The Cononian walls were built in 394 BC, by Conon, an Athenian general at the end of the Peloponnesian War, and are preserved at 2,5 km length. The part to be restored has been unearthed during landscaping works conducted in Piraeus for the Olympic Games 2004.
