The Propylea: the monumental gateway serving as the entrance to the Acropolis.
The temple of Athena Nike: it was dedicated to the goddess Athena Nike. “Nike” means “victory” in Greek, and Athena was worshipped in this form, representative of being victorious in war.
The Erectheion: dedicated to both Athena and Poseidon, this temple derived its name from a shrine dedicated to the legendary Greek hero Erichthonius.
The theatre of Dionysus: it is considered to be the world’s first theatre, built at the foot of the Acropolis. Dedicated to Dionysus, the god of plays and wine (among other things), the theatre could seat as many as 17,000 people with excellent acoustics.
The Odeon of Herodus Atticus: this is a stone theatre structure, located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis. The Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus built it in 161 AD, in memory of his wife. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000.
The Mars Hill (Aeropagus): The Areopagus is a prominent rock outcropping located northwest of the Acropolis. Its Latin name originates from the Greek counterpart “Areios Pagos”, translated “Ares Rock”. Later, the Romans referred to the rocky hill as “Mars Hill”, after Mars, the Roman God of War. In classical times, it functioned as the court for trying deliberate homicide, wounding and religious matters, as well as cases involving arson or olive trees.
