This is building is much smaller than the Partheon but it has a beauty and flare. As for the details, the Erechtheion offers you much more, I believe!

Seeing these virgins in place and checking out the entirety of the site, you just have to think of how great the craftsmen were at that time.

While the Parthenon is the most impressive temple on the Acropolis, another building, the Erechtheion was built to accommodate the religious rituals that the old temple housed. Erechtheion construction was concluded in 406 BCE. Of special interest are six statues which stand as column support, in contrast with doric / ionic or corianthan columns. Ond of the statues (second frm... More

While most people will tell you that the Parthenon or the temple of Athena Nike are the highlights of The Acropolis Mount, for me the Erechteion eclipsed them all. It is a stunning temple, beguiling and eye-catching, I just couldn't tear myself away from it. According to the myth it is where Athena and Poseidon battled for the patronage of... 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.
