Best Architecture Locations in the World: The Acropolis

The Parthenon and the Acropolis, in Athens, Greece, are amongst the most visited places in the world. The Acropolis in Athens is one of many acropolises in the world but since it is the greatest, it has taken on the actual word The Acropolis. It was created and built by the most advanced civilization in the world at the time. It was built for the political and cultural achievements of the people of Athens. Back in the day, towns were built around acropolises so that if they were attacked, they would all flee to the top of the hill and also the most important buildings were placed on top of the acropolis.

I, personally, have been to Athens, Greece and have visited the Acropolis and it is one of the most beautiful places you will ever see that is man-made. It’s amazing to think that it was made by people thousands of years ago when they did not have the tools we have today. You can see how much people loved this city and wanted to make something to show that.

The Parthenon goes under construction every 10-12 years and unfortunately it was during the time I was visiting, but it was still a beautiful site. To research visiting The Acropolis, click here.
