Contemporary "Glyfada" with its beautiful villas, fun-fairs luxurious buildings and hotels was occupied historically by the Municipality of Exoni. The area was characterized by a rural economy until 1900. In fact, fishing and agriculture were the primary elements of the development of this area-an area amongst the richest in Attica.
At the beginning of the 20th century the town had already changed its name to "Glyfada", a name given because of the presence of salty water wells typical of this area. The first buildings appeared after 1920 and later the exploitation of the beautiful beach began, the town starting to change into a seaside resort. In 1945 this area became an independent Municipality. Today the Municipality of Glyfada has a population of 100,000 residents.
