Guide to Acropolis, Athens

The Acropolis in Athens was the center of the Ancient Greek Empire. The Acropolis acted as a religious center as well as the power center of the empire. For many years it also was the empire’s treasury.

The Acropolis had many different buildings of both religious and architectural importance, and the location on the top of the hill made it easy to defend. However, several sieges of Athens have resulted in either damaging of the buildings and/or plundering of the temples (and of course the treasuries).

The Acropolis itself is towering over Athens, and many of the excavated sites that you can visit can be found on the sloops of the hill, including theatres, temples and other ancient buildings.

Audioguide – TTS, Text to speech
