"Parthenon" Athens Acropolis Tip by JUNLI

Athens Acropolis, Athens: 42 reviews and 40 photos


Favorite thing: <font face='Verdana'>Parthenon</font>

Fondest memory: <font face='Verdana'>
The name Parthenon means <font color=blue>'virgin's apartment'</font>, the largest <font color=blue>Doric</font> temple ever completed in Greece.

The Parthenon had a dual purpose - to house the great statue of <font color=blue>Athena</font> (Where is she now?), and to serve as a treasury for the tribute money which had been moved from <font color=blue>Delos</font> (Another cave used by pirate to hide gold?).
