Parthenon, Athens Overview

The Parthenon, an iconic symbol of ancient Greek architecture, is located atop the Acropolis in Athens. Positioned at the highest point of this ancient citadel, the Parthenon dominates the skyline of the city. It sits majestically on the Acropolis plateau, providing breathtaking panoramic views of Athens below.

At the Parthenon, one can hire a guide to learn more about the structure's history, rulers, etc. Several information signs explain the same in detail. A classic architectural design, the Parthenon undoubtedly went through its share of destruction but has managed to stand the passage of several empires, periods, conflicts, historical events, etc. The renovation aims to restore the marble and more than 300 ancient stones on the structure. Originally a temple, the Parthenon has donned different roles over the years. It was converted to a church and then became a mosque after the Ottomans took over. It was bombarded during various wars, converted to the state treasury and today stands with authority and aura as a cultural symbol.
