Philopappos Hill, Athens
Categories: Historic Walking Areas, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
Philopappos Hill stands just southwest of the Acropolis and honors the memory of Philopappus, a Roman magistrate. Philopappus was a member of a wealthy and powerful family and was so well-liked that many people from powerful families mourned him. The two-story structure is adorned with sculptures that depict Philopappos in relief promenading and as a bust. Although only a portion of the memorial stands today, the entire monument was intact as late as the 15th century. You'll find the attraction perched on Mouseion Hill with gardens decorating the base.

Bem próxima a Acrópole, é um monte de subida não muito difícil - há uma passarela com amparo e pode subir também pelas pedras. Monte onde presume-se que Paulo Apóstolos teria feito pregações .Right next to the Acropolis, is a lot of uphill not very difficult-there's a walkway with amparo and can climb the rocks.
