This is one of the least damaged portion of Acropolis and and looking gorgeous. The ladies in place of pillar looks beautiful. It vaccinated me more than Parathion. But it seems archeologist are working more on restoration of Parathion as it is much bigger structure and may come out well.

This is a lovely structure on the Acropolis which probably doesn't get as much attention as the Parthenon, but is just as stunning and worth a visit.

Enjoyed seeing it in late afternoon. Came up at 6 and had enough time to see everything before 8pm closing time. Coming later meant.... softer afternoon sun = much less crowds & less heat. Got the chance to sit on benches to appreciate in the shade. Got some lovely shots.... And enough photos without the scaffolding. Note that everything at... More

Such a stunning piece of history up right next to the acropolis, don't ignore it. The statues look spectacular against the clear blue sky.

Well preserved national monument which has had various uses as for example a church and a private private home. Be sure to walk right around to get the full splendor of the building. I love the Karyatid ladies which are also in the museum at bottom of Acropolis.

The ruins are being restored and Erechtheion conveys the glory of the temple some 2500 years back. Seen in conjunction with the Parthenon movie in the Acropolis Museum would give a good visual on what was Erechtheion.

All part of the Acropolis. You can walk all the way around and reasonably close to this as well. Statues are reproductions but regardless the history they convey is still impressive. Enjoy.
