Acropolis of Athens

For thousands of years the Acropolis has been the symbol of Athens, the sacred rock, and the link that connects the magnificent ancient civilization with the modern.
The Temple of Parthenon

The Acropolis and its monuments, its history and the myths that are connected with it are rightly the pride and the glory of this city, the envy of all other cities in the world.

The sacred rock of Acropolis of Athens was for many centuries the most important religious centre of the city of Athens.

The first traces of occupation go back to the Neolithic era. In the Mycenaean times it was the seat of the king whose megaron stood roughly on the site on which the Erechtheion was built many centuries later.

After the 11th c BC it became the home of the cult of Athena, patron goddess of the city that took her name and of other gods, and was adorned down to the end of antiquity with majestic temples, brilliant buildings and a vast number of votive monuments.

In the middle of the 5th c BC, when Athens was at the height of its power, the ambitious artistic program of Pericles was implemented.

It was at that time the Parthenon, the Propylaea and a little later the temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion were all erected between 447 and 406 BC remaining to the present day witnesses to the Greek Classical civilisation.
