The Akropolis Parthenon
The greatest and finest sanctuary of ancient Athens.
Primarily dedicated to its patron, the goddess Athena, dominates the centre of the modern city from the rocky crag known as the Acropolis.
The most celebrated myths of ancient Athens, its greatest religious festivals, earliest cults and several decisive events in the city’s history, they are all connected to this sacred precinct.
The monuments of the Acropolis stand in harmony with their natural setting.
These unique masterpieces of ancient architecture combine different orders and styles of Classical art in a most innovative manner and have influenced art and culture for many centuries.
The Acropolis of the fifth century BC is the most accurate reflection of the splendor, power and wealth of Athens at its greatest peak, the golden age of Pericles.
