The Propylaia was built as a monumental entrance to the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. It is an impressive building that surrounds the natural entrance to the plateau.
Built under the general direction of the Athenian leader Pericles, but Phidias was given the responsibility for planning the rebuilding of the Athenian Acropolis as a whole at the conclusion of the Persian Wars. The building was designed by the architect Mnesicles. Construction began in 437 BC and was terminated in 432, when the building was still unfinished.
