You can't miss this when you take the tour up the mountain to the Acropolis. It's a one-stop full package. You will enjoy the historical perspective.

Wonderful site. Real statues in museum but still a magical experience. Heard the story of how Athens was named after Athena.

The Erechtheion is located within the Acropolis area and is an ancient Greek temple found in the northern corner of the Acropolis, generally accessed as part of the Acropolis tour

Erechtheion is just opposite the Parthenon, the most attractive porch with the six Caryatids is just a copy but still, they capture visitors' attentions. The five original Caryatids were displayed at the Arcopolis Museum and one of them in British museum London.

This temple stands on the most sacred part of the Acropolis. It was the spot where Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and where Athena produced the olive tree. The most beautiful is the porch of the Caryatids.

Not huge like the Parthenon, but the sculptures of the roof supports are magnificent. Some were taken to the British museum in London. Worth a good walkaround

The Erechtheion is another temple that sits on the Acropolis adjacent to the Parthenon. I particularly enjoyed the six Caryatids that support the porch facing the Parthenon. Built to support the adjoining roof, they are delicate appearing statues of six maidens holding up the roof of the porch of this temple. The Caryatids were deteriorating rapidly in the smoggy atmosphere of Athens and have within the last few years actually been removed and replaced by replicas to preserve them from further damage. The originals reside in the Acropolis museum and one resides in London at the British museum. I particularly enjoyed the sculpture of these columns.

So ago, it was built, but it still tells a story!! Take your time, as It tells you! As in everything on this visit, I was deeply impressed by the epic nature of its building, and its meaning. The effort was supreme, and the builders did it justice!

This is a very complex building built 421-405 B.C. and worth studying to try and understand it. It is really composed of three parts. It was designed by Mnesicles. The eastern part forms the shrine to Athena Polias guardian of the city, with a hexastyle porch.(6 columns). The western part is in two chambers and a shrine to Erechtheus. The Northern porch was installed because they could not have a western porch due to the location of the Sancturay of Pandrosus which had to be preserved. the Caryatid porch is designed to conceal the stairway connecting the different floor levels. The entire is built in white Pentelic marble. There are 6 Caryatids, 3 leaning on their left leg and 3 on the right.
This is yet another bucket list item.
Access to the Acropolis is €20 and good value at that!
