The Parthenon (Ancient Greek: Παρθενών) is a temple in the Athenian Acropolis, Greece, dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their protector. Its construction began in 447 BC and was completed in 438 BC, although decorations of the Parthenon continued until 432 BC. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece and its decorative sculptures are considered some of the high points of Greek art. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy and one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments.

    Superb Konstantinos, love how it is set against the blue sky, wonderful detail and composition.

  • Thanks a lot David! Believe me mate, it wasn’t easy to find a part of the building without any distractions like giant cranes and other machines for the reconstuction of the building and of course many many tourists…
