“Still been Refurbish...”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is one of the most interesting things to see in the Acropolis. Since I studied the Erechtheion in school and I was eager to see it. Is not as big as expected but still its a nice thing to see and admire. There is a constant reconstruction and refurbishment going on in the entire Acropolis so its difficult to get close to it.

Most of the building has been reconstruct and only a few items are truly original but still is something magnificent to see and admire after so many years. Take your time to enjoy it!!!

The contrast in architectural style of the Erechtheion compared to the Pathenon makes this very interesting.

“Old ruins”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The ruins of an ancient temple.Not very much to see,only a few slender columns,some stone walls and probably the most famous part - the porch of the Caryatids.Still,somehow impressive.Ample restoration works in progress that affects the beauty of the site.Hundreds of tourists from all over the world.
Wonderful panoramic view of Athens from Acropolis.

Jewel of architecture with the side porch of the Porch of the Caryatids, Greek stone carvers deviated from the classic orders of architecture which were Doric and Ionic to create a whole new concept of statue columns. What a thrill to break free of tradition to find a new pathway in design!
