Archaeological evidence indicates that the Erechtheion was begun somewhere around 410 BC and finished about 406 BC. Dedicated to Athena, there were also altars for worship of Poseidon, Haphaestus, and Erechtheus, the latter being an Archaic King of Athens. According to one of my guidebooks,...More

Yes Replicas! The real maiden statues have been moved to the Acropolis Museum. Again ..I would like to stress the need of a tour guide to actually know what is real and what is not and the history behind everything. Lots of the original architecture...More

You can't miss this when you take the tour up the mountain to the Acropolis. It's a one-stop full package. You will enjoy the historical perspective.

Wonderful site. Real statues in museum but still a magical experience. Heard the story of how Athens was named after Athena.

The Erechtheion is located within the Acropolis area and is an ancient Greek temple found in the northern corner of the Acropolis, generally accessed as part of the Acropolis tour

Erechtheion is just opposite the Parthenon, the most attractive porch with the six Caryatids is just a copy but still, they capture visitors' attentions. The five original Caryatids were displayed at the Arcopolis Museum and one of them in British museum London.

This temple stands on the most sacred part of the Acropolis. It was the spot where Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and where Athena produced the olive tree. The most beautiful is the porch of the Caryatids.

Not huge like the Parthenon, but the sculptures of the roof supports are magnificent. Some were taken to the British museum in London. Worth a good walkaround

The Erechtheion is another temple that sits on the Acropolis adjacent to the Parthenon. I particularly enjoyed the six Caryatids that support the porch facing the Parthenon. Built to support the adjoining roof, they are delicate appearing statues of six maidens holding up the roof...More

This is a very complex building built 421-405 B.C. and worth studying to try and understand it. It is really composed of three parts. It was designed by Mnesicles. The eastern part forms the shrine to Athena Polias guardian of the city, with a hexastyle...More
