Athena (Advanced Telescope for High ENergy Astrophysics) is the X-ray observatory large mission selected by the European Space Agency and it is provisionally due for launch in the early 2030s. By that time the Cherenkov Telescope Array will be completed and routinely observing the gamma-ray sky at its nominal sensitivity, that is about one order of magnitude larger than current Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes. This talk explores the potential synergies between these two outstanding high-energy observatories by providing some examples of sources that will greatly benefit from joint observations.
