ParthenonThe main attraction for most guests is the Parthenon, which from the outside looks like the archetypal ancient temple, but has some architectural features to offer! The temple was dedicated to Athena, the patron goddess of the city. Later the temple became first a church (dedicated to Saint Sophia), then a mosque. This was severely damaged during a siege in 1687, before many sculptures were moved to the British Museum in London by Lord Elgin in the 19th century.
Temple of Athena NikeThe temple of Athena Nike is the first Ionic temple on the Acropolis, most of the others are built in Doric style. It was built after military victories.
