It was smaller than I expected, but it's beautiful you can just watch and wonder.

“The temple with statues of women holding the roof”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

Beautiful temple in Acropolis, The northern part of it having six statues of women holding the roof. The statues in Erection are copies. True ones can be found in Acropolis museum, except for one that is in British museum in London along with many other parts of the Acropolis.

“Interesting to see..”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

I liked how you could see the difference in marble (very obviously) for the restoration which is sympathetically done. It gives you a greater understanding of how the building was.

The original Caryatids are in the Acropolis Museum but even knowing that, these ladies are still lovely.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

One of the great pieces in Acropolis, you can't miss it on your left side when you go through Propylaea.
