Like the whole of ancient Athens and the Acropolis this site is spectacular. Didn't see it when it's all light up and a show going but can only imagine how good it is. Looks so impressive

Built in 161 AD, destroyed by fire in 267 AD and partially restored in the 1950's. It is in use now so will get preserved. Hard to miss since it is on the way up the hill to the Acropolis - worth a stop.
