Interesting art, sculptures, and historical context. Gives you a good appreciation of the scale and impressive building capability of the ancient world. Not a large attraction, you can see everything in less than 2 hours.

The Parthenon is interesting to tour and see the Greek goddess and interior of Greek history. The park that surrounds the Parthenon is used for all kinds of events which are always neat to attend.

The Parthenon was built as part of the Centennial Exhibition in 1897. It is a really cool structure with a lot of history, an art gallery, and a gigantic statue of the greek goddess Athena.
