This is an amazing structure, one not to miss. Enjoyed the sights, especially the female view. They are now finally coming into their own. The Acropolis is so beautiful, walking can be dicey, but if you take your time you’ll be alright.

After the Parthenon, the Erechtheion is one of the main sights atop the Acropolis of Athens. You cannot access the temple itself, but you can get close as you walk around the outside, taking in the famous Caryatids and sacred olive tree. A not to...More

Beautiful structure that leads to the story of how Athens got its name. Well worth the walk. Be sure to read up on it or watch National Geographic beforehand.

So special to see this site. I believe that the original "women" are now in the new Acropolis Museum.

Although the statues which are pillars supporting the temple are replicas, they are still magnificent. The Parthenon gets the attention, but the Erechtheion is interesting in its own right.

...on the Acropolis. The detail of the work is astounding and you should take some time to "breathe in" the details. Statues look small from a couple of meter, but the nearer you get you will notice how huge they really are.

To us this small temple is the most unique and the most aesthetically pleasing on the Acropolis, do not miss it.

I am pleased we went to this site. The statues are huge! If I remember right, two of these statues are replicas. Originals were placed in museums to preserve them. Look closely and you'll be able to tell which ones are replicas.

Having done a little research before visting the Acropolis we were astounded by the actual building. The damaged but partially restored Karyatids are in the Museum with reproductions built to hold the roof lintels in place. But there is more to the building including the...More
