Great restoration work has kept these beauties standing and for full view at the Acropolis site. I loved seeing them in the museum and then holding up the building. This was a foreshadowing for me to be here. As I chose this postcard in my...More

I think this is one of the more interesting spots in the Acropolis. The statuesque columns are hauntingly beautiful and unique. It's unfortunate that you can't get closer to them though, the area is cordoned off. Don't miss this when you are on the Acropolis.

As part of the Acropolis Complex, this must be seen. Try to have a very good guide on hands or hire a very good and knowledgeable guide with you, otherwise you end up just seeing a lot of piled stones. The history behind the monuments...More

Breathtaking, so worth the climb up the Acropolis, to see these beauties "in person" We followed our iPhone GPS on foot, and enjoyed the pedestrian walkways and staircases and discovering the Parthenon.

The highlight of the temple is the porch of the Caryatids which has six figures. Those on display are copies and the originals are in the Acropolis Museum.

As usual a nice feat of construction for the ancient gods. This is again located on top of acropolis.

This is the One of the things I visited Athens for. These 6 women figures look so dramatic on the top of the Acropolis hill, ancient and proud. Even the Parthenon I don't find as attractive as the Erechtheion, even tho' the original statues are...More

The history and arqutecture of this temple are quite unsual, as the Cariatides that help sustain it. Also unmissable !
