Acropolis of Athens

The Acropolis of Athens consists of several ancient buildings, which are the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Also, it has been known that the acropolis was the home of Athena, the patron goddess of the city. During the Venetian siege of the Acropolis during the Morean War in 1687, the entire structure was damaged because Parthenon was the source of the gunpowder storage and was hit by a Venetian bombardment.

Today, the remains of Propylaea, the Parthenon,the chief shrine to Athena and the treasury of the Delian League and the Temple of Athena Nike, which is the symbol of the harmony of the Dorian and Ionian peoples, can be visited.
