Acropolis - Propylaea, Athens: 21 reviews and 39 photos

  Part of the Propylaia
by Jmill42

Inside the Beule Gate are the remains of what was the official gate in ancient times, the Propylaia. It was the arch the Plato, Socrates, and all the others would have considered the entrance into the "high city". Today, it is a massive jumble of pillars, columns and rocks. Be VERY careful here, as this was the place that was most slippery. Know that I was here on a hot day, with no rain in the past month, and it was still very slick.
