The inside of the Erechtheion

The Erechtheion


The Erechtheion is temple dedicated to Athena the Greek Goddess of wisdom, and Poseidon the Greek God of the sea.  The temple is located on north side of the Acropolis. In my opinion it  is the most impressive ruin in the Acropolis. It really takes your breath away, when you fist set eyes on it. It is just awe inspiring.  Seeing this building was one of the awe moments I had on my trip. What makes it such an amazing temple. Is The Porch Of The Caryatids. Which you can see in the picture is a small porch with 6 statues  of women as pillars.

The View From The Acropolis Steps

I took this picture while sitting down, and taking in the view of Athens. The marble steps made for  a very nice  seat, but  they where very slipper and dangerous to climb. But worth it, for the great view!

Acropolis Steps.

Those are the steps that lead to entrance to the Acropolis proper. There is a short 5 to 10 minute hike to get up to those steps. The hike is also considered part of the Acropolis complex, because there are  archaeological sites  that date back to the building of the Acropolis.  The steps are filled with people resting and enjoying the amazing view of Athens. When I was there, it was early August and the heat was overwhelming. So most people used the steps as a resting area before heading up to the main site.

Guys please follow this blog so you can get updates when I post. It would really make my day if you did. :)

Odean Of Herodes Atticus

The theater was built in 161 AD by Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife. Even though the theater is a ruin it is still in use today, for concert and plays. Its is really impressive to see such an old structure in such great condition and still functional.

The Acropolis Museum

The museum was created to house all the artifacts that where found in and around the Acropolis. 

Greek tablet

All of Athens is filled with just little nuggets of history. This was a tablet with ancient Greek text just in the middle of a sidewalk. 

Dionysiou Areopagitou Street

This is really the only street that leads to the Acropolis complex.  There is another from a different side, but nobody use it. It makes for  eerie sense. The street is one of the most beautiful parts of Athens. Filled with vendors and large trees that provide shade in long blistering hot Mediterranean days. This was one of my fav places in Athens. I just felt so chill, felt like everything was going so slow, as if time slowed down.
