This must have been a one of a kind gate. The columns are magnificent. There is not much left of it, but you can still guess its glory

This was an amazing entrance to the Acropolis with a grand staircase, vision of the Temple of Nike and views to the city below. It was raining at the time and was a bit slippery, so be careful if you face similar conditions.

This is the entrance to the Acropolis. It’s a steep walk up to the grounds so it’s easy to be looking down and not up to admire the columns that from this entrance gate.
