Neighborhood: Acropolis

A splendid religious complex, the Acropolis consists of several temples which were built by the world's first democracy during the 5th Century BCE. The most majestic building of all is the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. The Parthenon became the paragon of classical Greek architecture and has suffered serious damage over the years. A small museum features an outstanding collection of ancient Greek sculptures.
