Well maintained and the plaque next to it gives great information about the place in three languages. Included in the euro 30.00 advance ticket which my travel agent bought for me and avoided having to stand in queue.

Essentially, you need not make a special trip to see this ruin as you walk up to the Parthenon at the Acropolis. You can walk to it and get a tour and around it but it probably isn't really worth it.

On the south slope of the Acropolis (and included in the entrance ticket), it is quite well preserved. Views are nice. Access is not allowed to see the sculptures that are in the center.
