The Acropolis, Mars Hill, and the Parthenon

Where Paul preached the good news about Jesus and the resurrection. "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. . ." (Acts 17)

Below the Acropolis is a theater built in 161 AD and still used today for concerts, from classical to rock

Carytid Porch of the Erechtheion. One was removed and is at the British Museum. What we see here are exact replicas of the originals

The Parthenon, the most famous surviving building of ancient Greece, probably 2500 years old

The happy architect who never dreamed he would see the Parthenon!
