Propylaea is the monumental building that provides the gateway to the temple complex on the Acropolis plateau.

With its steps, columns and fantastic views over Athens the Propylaea is a busy gathering point and favourite location for photos

Note - the Propylaea location is shown incorrectly on TripAdvisor! It is part of the Acropolis and not way over in western Athens as indicated on the TripAdvisor map!

The Propylaea is the massive and stunning gateway to the Acropolis. With the Temple of Athena Nike on its right this massive marvel to be admired. Whilst it was never actually completed due to the outbreak of the Peloponnesian war it is truly magnificent and will certainly set your imagination racing with the potential other members of history that walked through this entrance.

Monumental gateway to the Acropolis in Athens. The obelisk to the left is the Monument to Agrippa and the Temple of Nike sits in the top right. The Propylaea began construction in 437 BC but was never completed due to the outbreak of the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta in 431 BC. It was severely damaged during the Fifth Ottoman-Venetian War in 1656. The Propylaea has been partially restored and is a wonder to behold.

It is a feat of engineering and a credit to the archaeologists and restorers for recreating as much of this ancient gateway as they have, but, it still looks like a ruin, one that's not that impressive. Not in the context of some other ancient ruins you may see, even here in Athens. Worth seeing, for sure, especially for history buffs, but not nearly what it must have been in the past

This is the entrance to the Acropolis. It’s a steep walk up to the grounds so it’s easy to be looking down and not up to admire the columns that from this entrance gate.
