THE PARTHENON, ATHENS, GREECE - View # 6 - Detail

The Parthenon is a Doric temple (a masterpiece of optical illusion), regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athenian Democracy, one of the world's greatest cultural monuments. It was dedicated to the Goddess Athena. The Greek Ministry of Culture is currently carrying out a program of selective restoration and reconstruction to ensure the stability of the partially ruined structure.

The Acropolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

I dedicate this photograph to my good friend Yiannis Zogos, a University student of Archeology, who escorted me on a very interesting tour explaining to me the important features of the many archeological sites in Athens, which we visited today,Dec.11,2011, during our very long Sunday walk and climb! This particular photograph is one of a series resulting from this very educational tour.
