Acropolis of Athens, Athens

Pictures were taken on July 9, 2011

Theater of Herod Atticus
It is built by the Romans in 161 AD and still used today for classical concerts, ballet,
performances of high cultural value and Yanni.

The Propylaea
It was completed in 432BC just before the outbreak of the Peloponnesian wars.

The Parthenon


The Porch of the Caryatids

at the flag, where Athens stretches out endlessly below.

The plaque below the flag commemorates Manolis Glezos and Apostolis Santas,
the two eighteen year-old heroes who tore down the Nazi flag flying from the Acropolis
on the night of May 30th, 1941.
