The Acropolis and Parthenon

One of the wonders of the ancient world, the temple on the Acropolis of Athens, known as the Parthenon, was built between 447 A.D. and 432 A.D. in the Age of Pericles. It was dedicated to the city’s patron deity, Athena, and was constructed to house a large statue of her. Built on a hill that overlooks the entire city you will understand what Pericles meant when he said…

“If Athens shall appear great to you, consider then that her glories were purchased by valiant men, and by men who learned their duty.”
