About

At the peak of the elevation around which Athens is centred, lies the Parthenon. It can be seen from vantage points across the city and is the most obvious feature of the ancient structures. Work is said to have started on the original monuments as far back as 437BC.

The monument itself has been modified in use and appearance a few times during the last 700 years in particular, with earthquakes and conflict affecting the most significant changes. Many of the sculptures and adornments of old are now located in museums around Europe, such as the British Museum in London.
