Iconic temple built on the Acropolis. The temple is must see when visiting the Acropolis. As most associate the name with the shoe, there is so much more to this temple than one may first think, and easy to miss in the rush of tourists.

Now you know where the shoes guys take the name from... it is a smaller temple than you can visit if you have time after the Acropolis.

I can't hear the name and not think of the shoe. However, it is a small but important temple as far as Ancient Greece goes. Not as impressive as the Parthenon or as romantic as the coastal temples but it is still amazing to see such an ancient structure stand proudly.

Interesting and very well preserved, If you like greek mithology this is the place to go, also the ruins nearby are great.

My first pass through this, I missed the temple as this is standing before the main gateway to the acropolis. After the odeon, look to the right to see if you can spot this. Although not much is inside the templs, imagine the status of wingless Nike inside...

Another important part of the Acropolis. Well maintained with stunning views. Along with the rest of the buildings it is absolutely well worth spending time there and admiring it! Always good to read up on these sites before visiting. Allows you to appreciate them even more.

I was there at the end of August, 2014. It was very very hot and full of people because this is europeans vacations. But it's a very beautiful and an unforgettable place to visit. I recommend to go with a guide tour to enjoy the local history and take with you a bottle of water.

Amazing to see this Greek historic temple being maintained and allowing us all to "walk" in the footsteps of the historic Greeks. The views and the Temple are truly amazing.
