Parthenon of Athens

Located on the Acropolis, the Parthenon was a temple to the goddess of wisdom, Athena. The Parthenon was built in the Doric architectural style, and some say it is the best example of Doric architecture ever made.

The Parthenon can be seen from a distance, especially at night when the entire structure is illuminated by spotlights. The Acropolis hill also has a spectacular view of the city of Athens.
