This little, fairly unknown temple, was among one of my favorite sites in all of Athens! It’s located on the north side of the Acropolis, next to the Parthenon. And while the Parthenon is an iconic building which you have seen in many forms, Erechtheion may hold a special place in your heart as well. Dedicated to the goddess Athena,... More

This is unbelievable exquisite work of art that withstood the test of time. Incredibly amazing! I’m very glad that I get to see it with my own eyes. Absolutely a must-see! The six lady statues standing are replicas, the originals are at the Acropolis museum.

This beautiful building is a part of the Acropolis site, so you won't miss it if you go to the Acropolis - and you shouldn't miss either one of them!

When you get to the Acropolis Hill, you'll probably be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the main attraction here, the Panthenon. However, it's definitely NOT the only thing worth seeing here. The ancient Temple of Athena, Erechtheion, is also a must see. The caryatids are truly wonderful and the temple itself is definitely worth exploring.

After the Parthenon, this is the most impressive building on the Acropolis. It is on the North side, and was built to honor Athena and Poseidon. Make sure you see this as part of your Acropolis tour.

This relatively unknown temple housed the famous Caryatids, and today houses their exact replicas. It is nonetheless an impressive piece of history.

This temple is on the north side of the Acropolis and in very good condition. The six original statues of the women are in the Acropolis Museum, but the replicas on the building are damn good copies....unless someone told you, you wouldn't have known.

Erechtheion is the second most exciting spot in Acropolis (after Parthenon). The caryatids are amazing
