Temple of Athena Nike, Athens

(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
When touring the Acropolis, be sure to pay special attention to Temple of Athena Nike, the first Ionic temple in Athens' collection of architecture dedicated to their Pantheon. The walls and columns of the temple still stand in all their glory. Athenians once worshipped Nike, the goddess of victory, inside the colonnaded structure. Many of the statues and friezes that once graced the outside of the building can be found in the Acropolis Museum (moved to protect them from the elements). Access to this attraction is included in your ticket for the Acropolis. For Temple of Athena Nike and beyond, use our Athens trip itinerary planner to get the most from your Athens vacation.

  • Small temple dedicated to victory without wings immediately appears just to the right of the entrance and is one of the few monuments that were fortunate enough to be preserved in order to have a fairly intact despite all the incidents that have marred the Acropolis. This seems to happen at least in parts that were not stolen from Lord Elgin and preserved at the British Museum as the beautiful decorations around the capitals. Integrity for once is due to the Germans Ross and Shaubert thanks to the excavations carried out around 1835 that allowed a good reconstruction. The sketches seen in the area describe the original beauty and they let us imagine the ancient beauty. The whole area is being restored, but this monument probably will have the chance to reclaim some of the glory within a reasonable time.

  • Arriving on the Acropolis of Athens this small temple (a gem) finds it immediately right. And being restored, but also from a safe distance you notice the elegance and originality of the work.

  • There certainly are many temples and each has a story and wealth... This temple without being the largest is very nice I recommend visiting it

  • Very nice building, but too bad you cannot enter. Best views are before you enter the Acropolis.
  • Looks fantastic from the approach to the Acropolis. More difficult to see once you are at the summit due to ongoing restorations and the danger of falling.
  • Absolutely amazing piece of architecture, great photo opportunities and a beautiful and interesting historical experience.
  • Pretty cool
  • Very good conservation/restoration treatments
