Owner description: The second largest temple on the Acropolis has a complex and unique structure, including its famous Porch of the Caraytis with statues of six graceful maidens on the south side and a four-pillared porch with six Ionic columns on the north side.

Please see my Acropolis review -- this is in the same complex of temples and cannot be visited separately. The Caryatids (copies) can be enjoyed at the Acropolis Museum as well.

I love the temple of Athena Nike, but I didn't get to get close. The Caryatids on the actual temple are not original. The originals are saved in the Acropolis Museum.

Well preserved and a "must stop" on the top of the Acropolis. Also, you can clearly see this building from the Plaka district of Athens. You can walk completely around this structure.
