2nd only to the Parthenon this is a great highlight of the acropolis. The slender ionic architecture, the Caryatids and the beautiful conferring under the porch to the Poseidon temple make this a must see.

The Erechtheion temple is on the Acropolis hill, very close to the Parthenon. It's also undoubtedly the most beautiful temple on the Acropolis and in Greece, for that matter. The 6 intricately carved statues of Goddess Athena as pillars are simply beautiful.
