Athens Acropolis

On the rocky hill of the Acropolis, where the center of modern Athens is nowadays, in the past you would find the greatest and most magnificent temple of the ancient town, dedicated primarily to its patron goddess, Athena. This is the sacred place where the most important myths of ancient Athens, the greatest religious festivals, the oldest city cults but also some historical events, took place. The monuments of the Acropolis, harmoniously combined with the natural environment, are the unique masterpieces of  the ancient Greek architecture. They represent the innovative styles and trends of classical art which influenced intellectual and artistic creation for many centuries to come. The Acropolis of the fifth century. B.C. is the most accurate representation of the splendor, power and wealth of Athens at its peak: the 'Golden Age' of Pericles.
