Owner description: The earliest Ionic building on the Acropolis, this small temple of the goddess of victory depicts assemblies of the gods and Greek battles against the Barbarians and the Boeotians.

How many English Gentlemen make the Grand Tour, and went home to their country estates to duplicate this Greek temple for the focal point in their gardens?

Very well preserved temple on the Acroplis, near the Parthenon. This site is also included in the Acropolis ticket and very worthwhile. Great views from below and in the evening when lit up.

Not to be missed in your visit to the Acropolis. One of the best of the renovated temples. It is best to visit the site early before it gets crowded as it did for us.

I happen to LOVE this temple. It is nearby to the Parthenon (in the Acropolis). You can clearly see the Olive tree that was supposedly planted by Athena which won her the city of Athens in competition against Poseidon (151.12.58.141/virtualexhibition/contest.html and another site is
www.e-mporio.com/oliveoil/olive_tree/history_athens.htm ). Not to be missed!

This was also included with you Acropolis ticket and it was my personal favorite. If you go to the Acropolis museum before you go to these places it will explain what they all stood for and they will all have a greater meaning to,you. Athens was named for Athena who won a contest against Zeus by creating the olive tree whilst Zeus created the horse, so Athena became the mother of Athens
Wonderful to know the stories behind it all.
