This ancient Greek temple, located on the Acropolis and dedicated to Hephaistos, god of the forge, is one of the few temples to be almost entirely preserved.

Yes, Temple of Hephaestus is nice. It's in the middle of a park so you can sit there and enjoy the sun. But Greece has tons of these rocks so if you are already sick of them, it won't make a diffirence.

Wonderful and well preserved temple. Well worth a visit. Good view of the ancient agora from the small little hill/elevation the temple is situated on.

A wonderful place that exudes a magnificent atmosphere. I have a nice view of the gardens and the olive trees. Enjoy the sounds of crickets and the sun that warms you. The sights you definitely have to visit.

A smaller version of Acropolis as I call it, worth the visit within Ancient Agora, probably the main important site within the area.

One of the best preserved temples in Athens, really worth a visit. It is next to the Ancient Agora, so you will visit them both.
