Acropolis of Athens

Well, it was about time for me to upload a card with the most famous Greek sight! This is the Acropolis, an Unesco World Heritage Site. The Acropolis is actually a total of approximately 20 temples and buildings, most of them built at the Golden Age of Athens. At that time, Pericles was the leader of Athens. He put in charge of the construction Ictinos and Callicrates, two famous architects, and Pheideas, a famous sculptor. In the center of the card you can see the Parthenon temple, dedicates to Athena, the protector goddess of Athens. Underneith, you can see the Irodeion Theater.
