It’s the second largest temple on the Acropolis and the column statues are beautiful. Don’t miss walking around this temple.

Visit this awe-inspiring monument as part of the Parthenon tour. Its structures are still intact and are amazing in photos.

I was a bit worried when I saw the famous ladies lined up in the Museum that the Erechtheion had been vandalised, but the reproductions are great. Great to see them again after 40 years.

This temple must have been amazing! They did a great job by replacing the caryathides with copies. 5 of the originals are in the Acropolis musem. One was stolen by the British and is in the British Museum

Another wonderful archeological site in the Acropolis - beautifully preserved. Take some time out on the way to the Parthenon to take it all in.

What to say about this place. It still looks very good for such an old building. Your mind travels when you're there.

You will learn a lot about the reconstruction and actual location of the figures/females of the fabulous Erechtheion, and I don't want to spoil that, so be certain to learn about it. What an incredible site!

This is a small (but awesome-looking) building on the Acropolis itself. All these separate listings make it difficult to understand that to plan your monument sights in Athens, you simply need to go to the Acropolis, the hill where they are all located.

Temple dedicated to both Athena & Poseidon which has the outstanding porch of Caryatids featuring 6 maidens as supporting columns. Part of the Athenian Acropolis.
