Amazing facts-Acropolis, Greece

Acropolis, Greece

Translating to The Sacred Rock, the high city, the Acropolis in Athens has retained its splendor, despite its once-pristine temples and gates being battered with thousands of years of wear and destruction.

Its prominent architectural landmarks include its monumental entrance the Propylaea, the temple of Athena Nike, which is the earliest Ionic temple on the Acropolis, the Erechtheum (an unusually designed temple located on the north side) and most famously, the Parthenon, considered to be the most significant structure of Classical Greece and one of Europe's most recognisable landmarks.
