Owner description: The second largest temple on the Acropolis has a complex and unique structure, including its famous Porch of the Caraytis with statues of six graceful maidens on the south side and a four-pillared porch with six Ionic columns on the north side.

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.

Beautiful - definitely needed a tour guide to understand what was going on here, but its so cool to see. Worth it and amazing to see up close!

This is part of Acropolis hill monuments. Go early to avoid the crowds. Best view of this area is also from the Hill of the Nymphs.

Built in the late 6th century BC, this ancient temple has an amazing history. The chief attraction are the Caryatids, although these are copies as the originals are in the Acropolis Museum.
