Acropolis - Temple of Athena Nike, Athens: 15 reviews and 16 photos
Athena, Nike, Victory. Remember the shoe brand Nike? Ok, just some trivia.
THE TEMPLE OF ATHENA NIKE is no trivia though. It was built back then to commemorate the AThenians' victories over the Persians! It's a shrine to the Goddess of Victory, Athena Nike. In 1686, the temple was destroyed by the Turks. This was then reconstructed in 1834-38. It almost collapsed in 1935 & the original temple was again reconstructed.
