Acropolis of Athens

What can one say about the Acropolis, the rocky hill that was first inhabited in the 3rd millennium BC?
The Acropolis area is 156 m. higher than the sea level and 70 meters than the city of Athens and is accessible from the western side where the Propylaea serve as an entrance.  
The building of the Propylaea started in 436 BC after the completion of the Parthenon and were never finished because of the Peloponnesian war. They are divided into three sections and the central edifice is considered unique for the architecture of the period.

In the same area, visitors can also enjoy the magnificent buildings of antiquity such as the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion, each with its own unique architecture and history.
Around the Acropolis hill, there are the Aeropagus, the Pnyx, the Theater of Dionysus, the monument of Philopappos, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, which today houses the performances of the Athens Festival and the Academy - a few meters away- where Plato founded his Academy and developed his philosophical principles.

It is difficult to describe the emotion one feels when surrounded by the history and culture of several centuries. You have to experience it in order to understand!
