  • We absolutely loved the Propylea, which is the main entrance to Acropolis. The outstanding and absolutely enormous marble columns are just so splendid (be careful- the security doesn't like you to tou...  more »
  • An impressive entrance to the Acropolis that predisposes for continuity. Quite innovative from architectural and artistic terms. As you can see you feel AWE and impatience to see and the remaining monuments.

  • These are the Propylaea of the Acropolis of Athens at the entrance of the Acropolis. There, in front of you, extends the southern side of Athens. You can see there, on the right, the famous Hill of Pnyka ! You can also spot the buildings of the Sky Observatory of Athens. Finally at the background there is the sea and the island of Salamis, the site of one of the well known battles of ancient Greece against the Persians (the other one is this of Marathon), which saved and preserved the Western civilization, as we Know it to-day ..
  • As you wearily drag yourself to the top of the acropolis. the "sacred rock" you reach the stairs leading to the entrance through which all visitors, from 5th Century BC to you yourself must enter. It's humbling and awe inspiring to think of the people who passed this way before you. A grand entrance indeed.
  • The entrance. There are theories that it was once a smooth path into the Parthenon. The stairs were included later.
  • Nice ruins in the entrance to the Parthenon área. Really recommended.
  • Less amazing than the Parthenon for obvious reasons, it will be back on its splendor once the restoration works eventually are over. It is a massive gateway into the Acropolis and should have looked really amazing on its golden days.
