Penteli is a municipal community of the Municipality of Penteli which also comprises Nea Penteli and Melissia, where the seat is located. The city is situated in the Penteli mountain, so it was named after it.

Sarakatsan shepherds and Marathon farmers were attracted to the area where the livestock settlement was developing in the following years and was known as “Koufos”. In modern times, quarries were attracted in the wider area from all over Greece to exploit the famous mountain marble.

Paleontological finds have been discovered in the hills of the mountain that prove the rich fauna of herbivores and carnivores.

These include mammoths, grizzly bears, rhinos, pigs, deer, mesopotamians, elephants, antelopes and gazelles, as well as a rare species of giant turtle and hawks, cutlery and hyenas. These findings were found in the neighboring community of Pikermi, specifically in the “Drafi” area which was later built by a cooperative organization (despite the fact it was a forest area).
