The sacred rock of the Acropolis, the symbol of Athens, dominates at the centre of the modern city and is visible from its every corner.

A World Cultural Heritage Monument of UNESCO, it was inhabited from the prehistoric period and it was gradually shaped into the sacred area of Athens par excellence, dedicated mainly to its protector, goddess Athena. At its top stands the Parthenon, the supreme creation of classical architecture, Propylaea, Erechtheion and the temple of Athena Nike. At the slopes of the rock there are caves, sanctuaries and monuments of various periods, with better known the ancient theatre of Dionysus and the Roman Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
