There is an uphill walk to the Temple through the village. You will see the library of Aristotle as you head up to the Temple of Athena. The view is spectacular and well worth the effort

Built in 420BC and named after Greek goddess Athena Nike. Such a old building now only left its sandstone pillars. When you visit Acropolis the Temple of Athena is built on south west corner of the site.
