Parthenon of Athens

The temple of Athena Parthenos on the Acropolis of Athens


1 hour




About the Tour

No less towering than graceful, bearing the tint of antiqueness at its outset, and of perpetual newness in the course of time, according to Plutarch, the temple of Athena Parthenos on the Acropolis of Athens has always attracted owe and admiration. Pericles, the leading statesman in the golden age of democracy, built a temple fit for a grandiose goddess and its city, of unprecedented originality, refinement, and monumentality, in less than 15 years. Embellished with sculptures like no other temple before or after, the Parthenon projected the Athenian image of itself as the “School of Greece”, on the front line of mastering nature and creating culture, while also safeguarding and defending it against all foreign enemies.
