The Parthenon: An Ancient Greek Wonder
Take a virtual tour of The Parthenon (Athens, Greece). Explore the most famous example of Ancient Greek Architecture.
No trip to Athens, Greece is complete without a visit to The Parthenon. It was built between 447 and 432 B.C. as a dedication to the goddess Athena and demonstrated the artistic and architectural supremacy of Ancient Greece.
The years have taken their toll on this marvellous example of Doric architectural style. In 1687 The parthenon experienced the largest amount of structural damage as an explosion destroyed much of the main chamber and roof. Today The Parthenon is endangered by damage from the heavy pollution and acid rain that surrounds Athens.
