Visited the monument in September 2010, so the date of this review will be wrong. I had read Steven Pressfield's "Gates of Fire" and had watched the program on this battle on the History channel before the tour. My initial reaction to the site was disappointment but considering the time lapse this quickly disappeared and looking at the monument and being at the site where Leonidas and his Spartans and the men from various other cities fought for their country and freedom and made the ultimate sacrifice is not only humbling but made me appreciate the freedom I enjoy. Courage and valour is always to be admired and respected. A visit here is well worth the time if you value freedom!
