About The Parthenon

The Parthenon, crowning the Acropolis, is a symbol of the brilliance of ancient Greece and a beacon of endurance through the ages. Dedicated to Athena, the city's patron goddess, this temple combines perfect proportions and exquisite details in a harmony that has been celebrated for millennia. 

Even in its partially ruined state, the Parthenon remains a global icon, embodying ideals of beauty and symmetry. It stands not only as a monument to Athenian democracy and spiritual devotion but also as a testament to human ingenuity and the quest for aesthetic perfection.

Best time/season to visit:
The Parthenon is captivating at any time of year, but visiting during the early morning or late afternoon avoids the peak crowds and offers the best light for viewing and photography
