Acropolis, Theatre of Dionysos and Ancient Agora

Description

The Acropolis of Athens and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization. They form the greatest architectural and artistic complex bequeathed by Greek Antiquity to the world. In the second half of the fifth century BC, Athens, following the victory against the Persians and the establishment of democracy, took a leading position amongst the other city-states of the ancient world. In the age that followed, as the thought and the arts flourished, an exceptional group of artists put into effect the ambitious plans of Athenian statesman Pericles and, under the inspired guidance of the sculptor Pheidias, transformed the rocky hill into a unique monument and eternal symbol of Athens. The most important monuments were built during that time: the Parthenon, built by Ictinus, the Propylaea, the monumental entrance to the Acropolis designed by Mnesicles, the small temple Athena Nike and the Erechtheon.

ACROPOLIS
The Parthenon is a temple on the Athenian Acropolis which is dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron. Construction began in 447 BC when the Athenian Empire was at the height of its power.

THEATER OF DIONYSOS & AREOPAGUS
The Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus is a major open-air theatre and one of the earliest preserved in Athens. It was used for festivals in honor of the god Dionysos.

ANCIENT AGORA OF ATHENS
The Ancient Agora of Classical Athens is the best-known example of an ancient Greek agora, located to the northwest side of the Acropolis and bounded on the south by the hill of the Areopagus and on the west by the hill known as the Kolonus Agoraios,. It is also called Market Hill (or Forum Hill).

THISSEION
Thisseion is the name of a neighbourhood in downtown Athens, northwest of the Acropolis sacred rock, 1.5 km southwest of downtown; Its name derives from the Temple of Hephaestus, also known as Τhiseio, as it was, in earlier times, considered as a temple of Theseus.
