  • Monumental gateway to the Acropolis in Athens. The obelisk to the left is the Monument to Agrippa and the Temple of Nike sits in the top right. The Propylaea began construction in 437 BC but was never completed due to the outbreak of the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta in 431 BC. It was severely damaged during the Fifth Ottoman-Venetian War in 1656. The Propylaea has been partially restored and is a wonder to behold.
  • A beautiful entrance to the top of the Acropolis
  • Basically the entrance to the Acropolis. Unfortunately there isn't any particularly easy way up here other than by the ancient steps.
