The Acropolis isn’t just about the Parthenon – there are other temples there as well. We entered the complex through the Propylaea, the main gates.
Through it, you can see the city and the mountains.
Athens does seem to go on forever nowadays, but not long before, it occupied only the immediate valleys.
The Erechteion is the most well-preserved, and I think most beautiful, of all the existing temples.
However, the Ancient Greeks weren’t the only ones to build here. Down below are the remains of two Roman amphitheaters. This one, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, is still used for concerts in the summer.
The Acropolis however isn’t the only thing to see in Athens. I’ll show you some more sights in my next post.
